ABSTRACT
The article deals with the concept of power in leadership. It explains that giving power away is about identifying one's worth and boundaries while understanding and valuing the same in others. It is noted that power can be achieved through presenting superior experience, coercion through real and implied threats, legitimate authority, carrying the values of a group, or social power gained by influence. It suggests that power begins with and is retained by knowing oneself and recognizing the position of relevant others.
