The concepts of power and leadership have been and will continue to be interconnected. While an individual may exert power without being a leader, an individual cannot be a leader without having power. In this course, power is defined simply as ‘the potential to influence others.’ This definition puts into perspective the importance of using power in order to be an effective leader. In organizational settings, leaders must exert power to achieve individual, team, and organizational goals. Leaders must be able to influence their followers to achieve greater performance; their superiors and peers to make important decisions; and stake- holders to ensure the vitality of the organization. This course provides a constructive, structured methodology for leveraging the various sources of power in order to be the most effective leader you can be.
