I. Leader as Politician a. Power – i. Definition – potential ability to influence others to do what they would not do otherwise ii. Bases of Power 1. Formal Power : a. Coercive power – dependent on fear. One reacts in fear of the negative effects if one fails to comply. Applied in physical and verbal threats of pain, restriction, frustration. But it does not lead to good relationships and usually negative outcomes, not a likely source of power b. Reward power – opposite of coercive power. Positive benefits; people comply with the wishes of another because doing so will produce positive benefits. One who can distribute rewards that others view as valuable will have power over that person c. Legitimate power – Based on structural position, the most frequently accessed base of power. Positions of authority include coercive and reward power but legitimate power is generally accepted by everyone. The downside is that there will always be someone above you. 2. Personal Power : a. Expert Power – influence yielded as a result of experience, skills, and knowledge. However, knowledge changes over time and expertise decays with time as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
