Expand Your Base of Power
Being powerful comes from more than just occupying a high-power position, having expertise, or possessing status or wealth. True power rests on a broad base of powers—personal as well as positional—which are available for you to draw upon, no matter what challenge you face.
The broader your base of power, the more varied your powers. And this is a good thing: when your power rests on just one element, such as your position, expertise, relationship ability, or emotional persuasion, the more dependent you become on it. But your one power is not effective in every situation, making you vulnerable to situational factors that reduce your capacity to influence and be effective.
