I need help with a Social Science question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
Chapter 6 introduced us to how a manager “influences” day-to-day activities of others in an organization. It also discussed the tenets of power and control.
1) Discuss the difference between influence, control, and power as possessed and used by a manager/leader?
2) How do managers acquire and legitimize power? Explain.
3) What is the difference between rule and power?
4) Give an example of a leader/manager who has used his/her power productively and respectively and compare or contrast his/her leadership and use of power to another leader/manager whose power has been used abusively. Note: This may require you to do a brief research on leadership and use of power/power and leadership/good use and bad use of leadership power, etc. You must cite your research sources per APA.
