ASIP-PM1-20 Types of Power


Power is not a skill to develop; rather, the skill is understanding power, so that you can interpret the dynamics that influence the work in your teams. Leaders have power and influence their team to perform, but there are different types of power.

Scenario: You may find yourself, or encounter others, in formal or informal leadership positions, due to one or more types of power. As you do this activity, think about examples you may have come across in your life.
