Power is about achieving influence over others. In order to understand organizations and why certain decisions are made, it’s important to understand the power of those who are considered to be at the top and seem to have the ultimate decision-making influence. There is a strong connection between power and politics. Politics is not just about candidates vying for your votes in the government political arena. Politics is part of our everyday work world.
There are two sources of power, position power and personal power. Position power is derived from top management and is delegated down the chain of command. Person power is derived from followers, based on the leader’s behavior. Politics is the process of gaining and using power. No matter where we are in our work situation, we can learn to understand the power of politics and gain skills to use that power to advance a career.
There are also two types of workplace politics: positive and negative. Positive power in an organization encourages productivity and motivates employees by giving decision-making power, rewarding and recognizing performance. Employees are happier and more productive when they have the power to express ideas and concerns. A climate in the workplace that is focused on collaboration and equal treatment can prevent or mitigate conflict. Organizations and those in positions of power and influence that develop climates of negativity and conflict can develop a climate of dishonest and unethical behavior. When leaders don’t have the respect of those under them, they have negative power. Negative power motivates employees with threats of job loss and or show favoritism to certain employees, but does not recognize hard work of others. In order to develop positive power and politics, it’s necessary to have clear policies and specified chains of command and accountability. We can look at our own work place environment and evaluate those who are in power and how they implement the combination of power and politics and analyze if they are successful.

How do you view/define power and politics?
Explain the interconnection between power and politics. Be specific.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
