4 Contingency factors to power bases
Power bases (French & Ravens)(5 bases of power)
- Reward: obtaining compliance by promising or granting rewards
- Coercive: obtaining compliance through threatening or actual punishment (can only obtain reward or coercive through legitimate power)
- Legitimate: obtaining compliance through formal authority ("do it, I'm your boss")
- Expert: obtaining compliance through ones knowledge or information
- Referent: obtaining compliance through charisma(Expert and referent are personal forms of power/ more influence)
Dependency Postulate (Emerson)
A (boss) B (employee) as the employee you have some power over your boss. The more dependent B is on A the more power A has over B.-importance (worst case scenario/ oh well/ not worth it) scarcity (if i lose this job ill get another one) substitutability (worst case I'll get $ from parents)
releasing the power that employees in the organization already have
sharing power with employees

- E->P P->O
- Expectancy link (effort to performance)
- Instrumentality (performance to outcome) ( i.e. how realistic)
- After outcome it's valence
6 expectancy trait deal:
- Previous success

the perception that resources and rewards are distributed fairly
the perceived fairness of the processes and procedures used to make decisions process to get there was fair
Equity Theory (5)
- “Model of motivation that explains how people strive for fairness and justice in social exchanges or give-and-take relationships.”
- i. Equitable situation – balanced relationship
- ii. Negative situation – Inputs outweighed by outputs. Receiving more than felt deserved.
- iii. Positive situation – Output weighs less than input. Receiving less than felt deserved.
- Over rewarded raise inputs Under rewards less effort, raise, change comparison other
want it to be fair-an individual’s preferences for, tolerances for, and reactions to each of the equitable situationsBenevolentence under rewarded and ok

Dan Pink video questions
Give employees enough extrinsic motivation (money) to where it’s no longer an issue. Then they can be intrinsically motivated
Autonomy-desire to be self motivated
Mastery-doing something because you'll get better at it. Playing instruments on the weekend
Purpose-doing something for a greater cause
Building A Vision
- Core purpose + core values = success
- -Core purpose = reason for being, to guide and inspire, not a goal
- -Core values = 3-5 values, intrinsic values, no right set of core values.
- Quality, respect, and customer service are not core values because everyone believes in those. These are specific.
- -Vision: most overused and least understood
- -Vision = 2 parts: Core ideology & Envisioned Future
Core Ideology (core values & core purpose)
What the company stands for -why the company exists -it’s the identity, comes from inspiration
Envisioned Future “creative process” (BHAG & Vivid description)
- What the company wants to become
- -What the company wants to achieve
- -BHAG- Big 10-30 yr goals, clear finish line
- -Vivid description: what it’s going to be like to achieve the BHAG
- - “We’ve arrived syndrome”, the worth syndrome, you reach the BHAG and don’t have another BHAG
- -Basic dynamics of visionary companies: preserve core and stimulate progress
- 1% Vision and 99% alignment, when vision comes into place so does alignment, vision should be good for at least a decade
a mix of people from the company responsible for stating the companies core values, the best of the best.
