Dr. Jeffrey Pfeffer is an American business theorist, university professor, social scientist, and author. Described as one of the most “influential management thinkers”, Jeffrey is the Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organisational Behaviour at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University. He has been teaching at Stanford since 1979 and is the author of 16 books – with the arrival of his latest publication, which we’ll explore in this episode.


His previous books include ‘Dying for a Paycheck’, ‘Leadership BS’, ‘What Were They Thinking’, and ‘Power’ – which provides a really good summary of Jeffrey’s focus over the years. His latest book is called the ‘7 Rules of Power’ and is gathering plenty of praise. The book identifies seven research-based, reality-revealing rules for hierarchical success and provides lots of practical steps, insights, and examples to demonstrate how these rules can help to ensure both career development and personal growth.
