E is for Effective Truth

EFFECTIVE TRUTH

A concept taken from Machiavelli, effective truth is the truth expressed behind people’s actions or the results of their actions – not their words. If one person says one thing, but does another, then the effective truth behind what a person wants is expressed through his or her action.

For Greene, in playing the power game, you must focus on finding the effective truth – this truth is what will guide your actions and strategies.
