Explains the principles of "pull" and how to effectively apply it to individuals and
organizations to increase organizational and social change and develop creative talent.
For employees, business leaders, and organizations, Hagel, a business strategist, et al.
describe the power of "pull," which they define as the ability to draw out people and
resources to address opportunities and challenges on the way to success, create access to
what is needed, and harness the forces of attraction, influence, and serendipity. Within the
context of individual, societal, and institutional domains, they identify levels of pull that are
central to success--access to new sources of information, attracting people, talent, and
knowledge, and achieving potential--and how to harness them, and elements important to
understanding and mastering pull: the right trajectory, sufficient leverage, and the best pace.
