Reflection

Recall a time or two recently when you felt particularly “Powerful” as a councillor. What was the situation? What kind of power do you think you were using What were the consequences of your use of this source of power? If you could re-experience this situation, would you do anything differently? If so, what and why?

____________________________________________________________

Now, consider a situation where you felt “powerless.” What was it? Why did you feel this way? Who did have the power in that situation? What kind of power source do you think they were using? If you had a chance to re-live that situation, what might you do differently to have more influence?
