There is much to say about power, in and outside of organizations, and most often…it’s negative. When we look at the historical construct of the United States, it has been a white, male dominated culture with (sorry brothers…) power attributes that have been associated with oppression and coercion. Because of this historical framework, we have developed group think about types o power. Oftentimes, and especially if you feel/are oppressed, we delineate power into two categories: (1) those who have it and (2) those who don’t.
