Motivation and Power
It has been stated that different industries and organizational differences influence which motivational techniques and
theories are most effective. It has also been stated that situational factors, such as the type of power exerted, can
influence team and organizational effectiveness.
The employment of different types of power might influence a team member’s satisfaction, and thus, his or her motivation
to continue. In regards to your current industry and/or the culture of your current organization, write a reflection paper that
considers the following:
Describe leader power, follower motivation, and the aspects of effective followership.
Provide an overview of influence and the major process and content motivational theories.
Describe which motivational theory would be the most appropriate at your industry/organization.
Describe the power types from the French and Raven power taxonomy that would fit best with that motivational
theory and indicate the one(s) that would fit best with that motivational theory.
