Leaders rely on both influence and power to get others to accept and execute their vision, mission, and strategies.  Influence is one’s ability to impact or redirect the opinions, behaviors, and actions of other people. Power is just the future potential to influence someone, and it is derived from the organization or from within the individual them self.  One way to develop positional and personal power is through politics.  Once power is obtained, leaders must decide which influencing tactics they should use.  This course discusses leadership as it relates to politics and power.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Differentiate between soft and hard power.
  • Identify eight sources of power.
  • Define the four ways to gain political power, as described in the NEAR model.
  • List seven positive ways to tactically influence others.
  • Define networking, coalition building, and negotiation.

All materials are included in this course.
