Dimensions of Governing Power

Governing power allows leaders or a movement to sustain change. But what is governing power? How do we know when we have it? And how do we obtain it? This diagram outlines three aspects of power that organizations should consider as they design power-building strategies.

The Three Faces of Power, a Grassroots Policy Project report, covers power-building strategies in greater depth. We encourage you to review it when using the Dimensions of Governing Power diagram.
