I feel as though reward power is best because it sets standards and when those standards are met there is a reward for the hard work. I think I have reward power, for instance when my two year old cleans his room with me he gets a reward. I have the same mind frame at work, when I want something to be done and someone helps me to achieve it I reward them. Like the first time I sold a Dish Network package a coworker of mine was helping me. He came up and when I had a question that I couldn’t answer he helped me with it.

    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.
