LP6.1 Assignment: Sources of Power
This assignment will assess Competency 6. Analyze issues that relate to power, influence, conflict, and negotiation in organizations.
Directions: Examine and describe the five sources of power and the four contingencies that can determine the potential of those power sources. Choose a present or former workplace organizational member who holds a source of power, and describe what sources of power they maintain, and how they utilize their source of power. Then discuss how the different contingencies of power could affect their influence positively or negatively within the workplace.
Using APA 6th edition format, write a 2-page paper and cite your sources of information (at least three) at the end of your paper. For help with APA Citation, review the Library’s APA Formatting & Style page, which contains a tutorial and handouts to help with APA style formatting.
One of the three required citations may be from the McShane and Von Glinow textbook. However, at least one of the remaining two citations should come from the NAU Online Library. You will need to conduct independent research using databases contained in the Business Databases Subject Guide on the NAU Online Library. If you decide to use an external website, review the Finding Credible Websites tutorial.
