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.

    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.
