The Power Motive - Organisational Behaviour

The leading advocate of this motive was pioneering psychologist Alfred Adler. Power motive essentially is the desire to control others; to direct others’ behaviour. The power attaches to one’s personal competence. In an organization because of his competence a person comes to acquire power. His say influences the decisions of his superiors. In other words he comes to acquire extra constitutional powers. Person who has acquired such power must use it for the good of the organization. It is necessary that he recognizes that the power he has is because of the organization. In other words he be high on social inhibition also.
