Why Nice Guys Finish Last at Startups

Jeffrey Pfeffer, a professor of organization development at Stanford, has been teaching students about power dynamics in the workplace for the last 30 years. This fall, Pfeffer published a book — Power: Why Some People Have It and Others Don’t — that explores why what’s best for your employer isn’t always good for your career, and suggests that backing down never pays off.

I caught up with Pfeffer this morning to talk about the book and its applicability to startups.
