My analyze of Mr. Zore’s power stems from the Figure depicted on 12.2 page 286 of the text. It is listed here that there are three dimensions of managerial power and influence. Within these three dimensions a manager can influence other members of the organization from laterally, upwards and down using the power they have earned or have been given. Going upwards to higher level superiors the influence is based on personal power, downwards towards subordinates it is based on position and personal power and laterally towards peers and outsiders the influence is based on personal power. Mr. Zore was given the Baird award for management excellence in 2006 and recognized as one of the 100 most influential People in Business Ethics . The impact those awards had on his personal power substantial. “Personal power resides in the individual and is independent of that individual’s position within an organization” . Since the power is dependent on the person it requires four bases which are expertise, rational persuasion, reference, and coalitions. Analyzing these four bases of personal power will reveal to what extent the awards had on increasing Mr. Zore’s personal power. Expert power is the ability to control another person’s behavior through the possession of knowledge, experience, or judgment that the other person does not have but needs . It is basically being an expert in a field and having subordinates that are not experts trust your judgments and actions because they feel you know what you are doing.
