Power in the Workplace

94% of leaders surveyed rated themselves as being moderately to extremely powerful at work.

28% of leaders surveyed felt that power is misused by top leaders in their organization.

59% of leaders surveyed agreed that their organization empowers people at all levels.

The top three most leveraged sources of powere are: the power of expertise, the power of information and the power of relationships.

The three sources of power leaders believe will be most important to leverage in the future (next five years) are the power of relationships, the power of information, and the power to reward others.

The power of relationships was the type of power most often cited as being used to promote one's own personal agenda.
