Bases of Power Reward Power - Defined as power whose basis is ability to reward o Increases with magnitude of rewards o Depends on probability O can provide rewards, as perceived by P - New state of system highly dependent on O, since he controls whether or not P will receive the reward - Over time will increase attraction of P towards O, and will therefore later increase referent power - As long as P finds it legitimate that O offers rewards, rewards/promises will not arouse resistance in P - Range of power restricted to range of things O can offer rewards for - Unsuccessful attempts to offer rewards out of range= loss in power Coercive Power - Stems from expectation on the part of P that he will be punished by O if he fails to conform to influence attempt o Similar to reward power in it involves O’s ability to manipulate attainment of valences o In this case attainment of negative valences - Depends on magnitude of negative valence of threatened punishment - Leads to dependent change; degree of which varies with level of observatility of P’s conformity -

    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.
