The subject of power is a complex one. There are many types, levels, and definitions of power. But in general, it can be defined as the control over something or someone which is exerted because you have more force or capacity. The question that arises then is how does power come about? How do people gain power in society?

When someone has a position of power over others through coercion or force, there are often negative consequences for these individuals and those around them.

What are the five sources of power?


The Five Sources of Power are as follows:
