UC Berkeley psychologist Dacher Keltner makes the case that a person's ability to empathize is what helps him or
her reach a position of authority. However, leaders lose empathy and related qualities like generosity and openmindedness
the longer they're in power. We speak to Keltner about his new book, "The Power Paradox: How We
Gain and Lose Influence" and about what it takes to remain an enduring and effective leader. And we want to hear
from you -- what qualities do the best leaders have?
