Brendan O’Neal Brendan O’Neal MAN6107 Week 5 Assignment Power and Influence The Raven and French Power Taxonomy (1959) classified the five types of power: reward, coercive, legitimate, expert, and referent power. These types of power are seen used in the workplace in various forms; the Raven and French model has continued to influence research on power (Yukl, 2010). People succumb to these different forms of power for different reasons. In the organization that I work for, I am able to see these sources of power at work and by understanding what type of power is being utilized I can recognize why a certain individual influences me and how to use this influence and power exchange to my advantage throughout the course of the relationship. Reward power is used in my workplace every two weeks; this type of interval reinforcement is called “pay day”. Pay is the primary reason why most people work, though, in theory, one would have to derive additional satisfaction from a job to attain long-term longevity in the position. There are other types of reward power, though not many are used in the organization that I work for. The organization that I work for is very cut and dry in terms of compensation. It is a non-profit organization that does not have much financial “wiggle room”. In fact, there have been no raises given at the organization that I work for in over four years. Other monetary rewards come every so often in the form of gift cards, and a bonus once every three years (if we pass our accreditation).

    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.
