Example text

People maintain their authority by using the group resources that gave it rise, such as interpersonal pressures and norms that sanction the relationship and define what is acceptable. The maxim “love flees authority” adds conventional wisdom to this idea. Authority-power induces remoteness, psychological distance between followers and leaders. Gaining and using authority increases our vulnerability to group members. Some of the “loneliness at the top” may derive from the adverse psychological impacts of the exercise of authority.

Power technology is beginning to be codified into discrete sets of power behavior. These behavior sets are coalescing into definable tactics we can use to secure our desires. Power tactics can assist both leaders and members of our social institutions to attain their goals. Conventional techniques of leadership such as, for example, participative management, decision making, or change or conflict management are no longer enough to fully explain organizational action (Yukl & Becker, 2006). Seen in power terms, the behavioral changes leaders need to create organizations capable of adapting to the sometimes intense pressures placed on modern organizations become clear.

Power is generic; influence is one form power takes in getting others to comply. His insight that power is a definite resource, however, is relevant to this discussion. Much of the later discussion about power sources confirms and elaborates this concept. Kaplin (1964) defines the scope of power as the range of stimuli and the range of corresponding responses the power user affects. Kaplin defines power in measurable terms based on the scope of impact over people, material, or other resources held or controlled.
