Power, Conflict and Resolution

Evaluate your workplace and identify a group that has “power” in the organization. Analyze why the group is considered powerful.

  1. What are the elements that contribute to the group’s power base?
  2. Is there a perception among employees in your organization that a disparity of power exists between the “powerful group” and other work groups?
  3. How can managers minimize the possibility of negative reactions or conflict between groups if the perception of power disparity exists?
