Which power bases lie within the individual? Which are derived from the organization? How are power and politics related? Personal powers such as expert power, rational persuasion, reference power, and coalition power are the powers that are the bases of the individual. Organizational powers include reward, power, process power, information power, representative power, and coercive power. Power and politics are related through people. Organizations want leaders, people who have skills and the ability to influence others. These same people make up our government, leaders who have the influence to persuade the masses. (Schermerhorn) It has long been a dictum of management theory that leaders must adapt their behavior to fit the specifics of a situation. Evaluate whether transformational leadership is appropriate for all occasions. In which situations might it not be effective and which theories might be effective instead? Transformational leadership is not appropriate for all situations.

All leadership styles are applicable to all situations but it is the level in which they are appropriate and effective that a manager has to determine so that they know which type to use. The effectiveness is the key to achieving the goals of the manager thus knowing which type to use in each situation is a key to successful leadership. How do emerging leadership theories support innovation and entrepreneurial spirit within organizations? Emerging leadership theories define leadership as it grows and develop and aids in teaching managers how to lead effectively. The emerging leadership is a collection of strong points in historical leadership strengths and combines these ideas with current management ideas. This combination of old strengths and new ideas allows freedom and encourages free thinking and creativity in management. The emerging leadership style also encourages input so that ideas from people with different backgrounds which gives diverse viewpoints of different situations. In my work experience our upper managers allow middle managers flexibility to and out given opportunities to practice their skills and abilities so that youth in a management sense is fostered. This will allow our company to continue to grow and expand in ideas and in business success.
