Questions for discussion

The second component of the work this week is power, authority and influence. Understanding the sources of power is an important aspect of leadership studies. But be warned of the old saying power exercised is power lost.


1. Which of the theories do you best relate to in your understanding of leadership?
2. Social exchange theory describes the process by which individual leaders gain and lose power over time. How useful is this approach?
