AbstractIn recent years, empowerment is a frequently used tool by organizations to enhance the performance potential of their employees. The purpose of this paper and the proposed presentation is to introduce a simulation called Star Power (Shirts, 1993) which deals with issues related to power and its use. Through active participation in a simulated organization, the participants are expected to personally experience the various facets of power and the effects of powerlessness on their own and others’ behavior.
