23 Bases of Individual Power and Influence* 1.Reward Power: Results from the holders ability to reward others 2.Coercive Power: Results from the holders ability to punish others 3.Legitimate Power: Based on recognition of the holders valid authority in a given situation 4.Referent Power: Based on a persons attraction to or desire to be like the holder of power. 5.Expert Power: Based on the belief that the power holder has special knowledge or expertise *French and Raven's Five Forms of Power 21
