TIPPING POINT
Tipping Point
Describe the “tipping point” where power turns into domination. Explain how these two
dynamic forces are unavoidable?
In social sciences Power and domination are the basic concepts and recognizing the tipping point
where power turns to domination. The definition to have power or to rule over others is the sole
difference between power and domination. There are lot of examples in nature i.e. three type of
power configurations not only in humans but in all mammals (i) Solo, (ii) Herd and (iii)
Hierarchical.
The solo category includes animals like tigers that spend most part of their lives alone apart from
mating reasons. The herd includes mammals like sheep and deer that live in clusters to avoid
predators. The hierarchical includes mammals like chimpanzee and humans which prefer social
infrastructure in which there are classes’ i.e. high class and low class. This concept prevails in
almost every organization such as competition between employees for promotion and this is only
because of desire for power. People with hidden plans and misleading views had altered the
unavoidable dynamic forces of power and domination.
People want power because they can shape their dreams and can make things according to their
desires. One can use power to fulfill his and his loved one’s wishes. One can use power to
impose his thoughts and ideas on others so that he could get precise outcomes of his wishes. If
we are dealing with the information of empowerment without compassion then one may called it
merely one component. This type of power give rise to those people who want to use others for
their own personal gain and try to dominate through illegal means. They may always be in the
search of people like themselves or who follow them to dominate others and build their kingdom.

TIPPING POINT
When they find someone who is in power, they prefer him to be leader to dominate and they use
every mean to get their objective or they may prefer be the leader of people who use their
abilities for their own prosperity. This type of leadership believes that if people are successful,
they might successful too. I believe that power should be equally distributed among individual
i.e. in organization every employee should have an opportunity to fulfill his dreams because the
key of one’s success lies in every person’s ethical range.
