Power Management

To build management skills, think about a situation you are familiar with in which a leader was very ineffective.   1. What sources of power did the leader have? 2. Did the leader have enough power to influence his/her followers? 3. What kinds of behaviors did this leader engage in? Were they appropriate for the situation?  Why or why not? 4. From what you know, do you think this leader was a task-oriented or relationship-oriented leader? What steps did this leader take to motivate his/her team? 5. How favorable was this leader’s situation for leading? Was this person leading or managing? 6. To what extent do you think managers and organizations have an ethical obligation to put limits on the amount of coercive power that is exercised?
