Desire to Have Power...

Why do people desire social power?

Social Power - Seems to Be Organizational Power
John Henry, Manager, United States
Your question brings to my mind another question... It seems there is Personal Power (your ability to move your physical environment) and there is Social Power (your ability to influence those around you) what other power is there? Economic Power is either physical or social. Government Power is social power. All other power is derived from one or the other of these basic powers. So to answer why does someone want social power? To get things done that they do not posess the physical power to accomplish. Just my mind wandering here. Others want to chime in?

Social Power in Africa
V. L. KHUZWAYO, Student (MBA), South Africa
Africans approach the issue of social power from the cultural point of view. Africans do not emphasize individualism over society. By society, any relevant and correct context is noted even organizational. Whoever may claim power, such power will be on the basis of delegation and can be taken away by the society in question.
With Africans for unity, you must find a block of granite than a bowl of loose particles of sand. Social power makes Africans and is very central with patriotism. The context can vary and this concept is not far away from teamwork in the organizational management domain.
