One of the definitions of leadership assert that leaders

influence others who are enthuastic participants into action. The

ability to influence conveys a degree of power. Leaders use power

to further their organizations and their own goals. Power by itself

does not make for an effective leader. If we look at leadership

without qualifying leader effectiveness and discount that followers

must be enthusiastic participants, only then could agree that a

leader is simply a person with power. For example, coercive power

is one of the five power types identified by John French and

Bertram Raven (16). This power type is based on fear. Leaders,

using this term loosely, who rely on coercive power will face staff

motivational and other issues that mitigate the leader's

effectiveness. - Glenn Larsen
