September 02, 2012
Excerpt from USA Today -- "Managers can get a heightened sense of their own power when they're pushed to zero in on bottom-line issues such as headcount, budget control and worker bonuses, according to a recent experiment from New York University's Stern School of Business and Cornell University's Johnson School of Management. 'As resources become more finite, then there is a pecking order of who gets more. That gets everyone more focused on power,' says Steven Blader, associate professor of management and organizations at NYU."
