The aims of our paper are to demonstrate that power can influence the quality of leadership in a system and, that the leader of an organization can choose to delegate power to the employees, keeping them motivated and improving the overall performance of the organization. The ability to influence others is based on native traits and constitutes a product of personal development. The TeamWork association, comprising students mainly from the Faculty of Administration and Business, University of Bucharest, is a good example of the way in which power and leadership influence each other contributing to the development of a system.
