Passion, Poise, and Power cont'd

Passion, Poise, and Power cont'd
 
This completes the last post on this theme. 
 
Whether you are in management, support, or staff, these are timeless tidbits to keep you in the present of your work experience, and maybe even your personal experience. So let's look at...
 
Power!
 
This area is quite broad, so I will use influence as the context in which I explain the use of power!
 
Power in the workplace certainly has its place. Things get done by the one who possess great power, as it is an attribute. Power gives energy, albeit negative or positive.  The scope of the one who exudes power is due largely in part to the degree in which his or her influence over people, or over a given situation yield the expected results.  In other words, a person uses his/her influence (or power) to get what he/she wants! Period!
 
Imbalanced power in the workplace can have a negative ripple effect if a manager or supervisor lords it over staff or support, i.e., manipulation, ultimatums, guilt, or divide & conquer tactics. Balanced power creates synergistic energy. It brings the demand for meeting the bottom line, the virtue of valuing team members, and organizational structure and well-being into the whole approach to long term success.
 
Irrespective of what position you hold, everyone has a certain degree of power and/or influence at work. When you are able to recognize this dynamic, then it is incumbent for you to decide to what degree will you use this influence, and to what degree will you allow yourself to be influenced.
 
As position and power are often times intertwined, a good manager or team member should use both with discretion and tact to achieve expected results.
 
Make this your BEST day ever!
