Power is the ability to influence or control events. It depends on resources parties can employ to influence others and attain their goals (Folger, Poole, Stutman, 2009). As such, power is viewed as zero-sum. It strengthens some people at the expense of others. Power can also be mutually expanding and capacity building (Moore Lappé, 2005). It builds the capacities of all involved. It is creative, generating new strengths and new possibilities.
