Provide your result (kind of power for each scenario) plus a reasonable justification of why you chose that particular “power” mode. Scenario #1 - Rewards – offering the extra paid days of vacation is a bribe essentially to motivate them to get the project in a quicker timeframe than normally be expected. Scenario #2 - Punishment – suggesting that the employee’s hours will be reduced simply because they are not able to fill your request to work additional hours is a form of punishment and threatening behavior is inappropriate and unacceptable. Scenario #3 - Authority – the manager is using authoritative power to help the staff understand that they need to respect his/her authority now that they are in a managerial role. Friendships can still be present and the manager can still be nice, obviously, to these reports, but that’s a hard line to draw once you have stepped into that role. I have experience in this very thing. Friendships changed as a result of having to report directly to me and not because I was a bad manager, but it’s hard for many to understand the line that had to be drawn and that it was not ok for me to show favoritism based on having a friendship prior to my role changing. Scenario #4 - Expertise – you are utilizing your past experience and a successful one at that, as a guide to develop the marketing campaign for the new company and drive your career and authority with the new company. Scenario #5 – Appealing personal characteristics – There’s something to be said about having charisma and charm and ability to use it to your advantage in a business environment and in this situation, the employee used their charm as an opportunity to change their customer’s mind from moving their business to a direct competitor. The CEO may not be on board with the change now, but because of the relationship you have with the company contact you have and the fact they don’t want to see your company fail might enough to persuade the CEO to stay.

    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.
