Discussion 1: Shared Reflection/Discussions topic - Due end of module 2
Through reflecting on the case study presented in module 1 learning resources, describe one or more of the types of power, defined by Shenoy, which could be demonstrated positively or negatively by the leader of the team. Further discuss how a project manager can use this type of power to impact the performance of the project team and improve the likelihood of project success? What benefits can be gained from using more than one source of influence when leading a team? Is there a difference between influence and manipulation? Justify your answer.
Respond to at least two or more colleagues' postings, offering further support or potential challenges to using the power types in a Project Management capacity.
