Although we discussed Power in earlier chapters, we learned more about management theories and techniques. As we conclude this course, it will be important for you to gauge where you stand as a manager, what your management style is and what you value. This assessment will help you understand your behaviors.

A high score (> 16) of any of the five dimensions of power implies that you prefer to influence others by employing that particular form of power.
A low score (8 and less) implies that you prefer not to employ this particular form of power to influence others. These scores represent your power profile.
To build management skills, think about a situation you are familiar with in which a leader was very ineffective.
What sources of power did the leader have?
Did the leader have enough power to influence his/her followers?
What kinds of behaviors did this leader engage in? Were they appropriate for the situation? Why or why not?
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?
How favorable was this leader’s situation for leading? Was this person leading or managing?
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?
