Power

Power is generally defined as “the capacity to guide others' actions toward whatever goals are meaningful to the power-holder” (Messick & Kramer, 2005, p. 277).  As explained in Lussier and Achua (2010), power "is about achieving influence over others" (p. 110) and "power is the leader’s potential influence over followers" (p. 110).
