Yet Khatharine Graham, chairperson of the influntial Washington Post Company, notes, “Nobody ever has as much power as you think they do.” In this article, i examine the major sources of power and whe ways that leader can effectively use the power they potentially have available.

Power is the ca[pacity to affect the behavior of others. Leaders in organizations typically rely on some or all six major types of power.

2.     Expert power
3.     Coercive power
4.     Expert power
6.     Referent power
