Sources of Power in OrganizationsEffective leadership qualities motivate and inspire others to work more efficiently in a productive manner by using systematically evaluated approaches in applying their power and influential sources. Every executive job position in workplace organizations lends particular tools to the leadership through which they can retrieve and apply power to regulate the employees and to carry out the assigned tasks more productively to contribute in the shared organizational goals. In 1959, John French and Bertram Raven introduced five elementary essential ingredients in identification of power sources; legitimate, coercive, referent, reward, and expert power [Merchant, P. (2015)]. As a brand manager of a toothpaste in an economically, and profit-wise established organization in which I cannot impose direct authority to manufacturing and production departments, I can use reward, expert, and referent power sources to influence the organizational performance and productivity in advertising and manufacturing of toothpaste. As the job mainly involves the encouraging and motivating the employees, the reward and compensational programs in the form of increased salaries, commissions, promotions, or incentive bonuses can primarily motivate the employees in manufacturing and advertising departments of the organization. These rewards will work as positive reinforcement factors and the employees will take more interest in their responsibilities
