What is Power? How does one get power? Power
Explain power and compare how it relates to leadership.
Legitimat e Power Legitimate power is power given to a person based on their position or role. It’s determined by the hierarchy of the organization. An example of legitimate power would be like a Junior manager reporting to a senior manager and they reporting to a director of operations.
Reward power is reward power is the ability that one holds to distribute out incentives and compensation in an organization. This ties along with legitimate power. Incentives like bonuses, raises, praise, promotion and or recognition. When used properly and fairly this can really increase moral in the workplace, but when used unfairly it can cause a lot of tension. For example let's say my mom was my boss and she gave me a raise for no reason because she had the reward power to do so, this would cause a lot of problems in the workplace.
