Mike reading from the introduction to Powerhouse

And here is a description of the contents, chapter by chapter...

The Powerhouse Interview

Career coach Felicity Dwyer speaks with Mike Clayton about Powerhouse, asking what Powerhouse is, the meaning of the term, why he wrote the book, where the ideas in Powerhouse came from, and Mike's hopes for his latest book.

Please note: This is not exclusive, pre-order, content.

This is a pre-order exclusive video, summarising one key idea from each of the chapters of Powerhouse.


I have chosen ten excellent TED talks that will complement the ten chapters of Powerhouse.

They are not 'about the same thing' but mostly cover one of the ideas in each chapter. I hope you enjoy them.

At the end of the list, I have also retained three that I wanted to include, but did not quite make the cut into the top ten, or did not fit well into one specific chapter heading.
