Power Bases: Coercive and Persuasive Power (CPP) Scale
18.1 The Instrument and its Administration
Coercive and Persuasive Power (CPP) Scale is based on the concept of bases of power. Although the scale is developed for managers, it can also be used with trainers and consultants for whom the concepts are very relevant. Originally, five coercive and five persuasive bases were included, but later 6 bases were included in each category.
The instrument has the following objectives:
- To help respondents become aware of the different bases of power.
- To help them examine their own value and need profiles (sufficiency–deficiency) of different power bases.
- To help them to explore the consequences of their power profiles.
- To survey power profile in a group/department/organisation for OD interventions.
