If you ask a person to do something, why would he or she say yes and comply? It has to do with the power you hold and the influence you wield. This holds true regardless of whether you’re working with your boss, your direct reports, your coworkers, or even with friends or members of your family. We discuss:

- What is power and what are the primary sources of power

- What is influence and what are the primary different influence tactics

- Implications for people, leaders, and organizations
