Abstract: When all of the concepts of leadership are examined, leadership actually appears to be an effective process, a focus point for group activities an agency that provides dynamism in differentiated role structures and a capacity to take advantage of individuals by fostering cooperation among them. Also, power comes into prominence as an effective resource. What researchers mean by the concept of power is the ability to influence others. Path-goal theory is concerned with leadership behaviors intended to get employees to achieve organizational goals. Actions performed by the leader generate power distance in the organization. Power distance is an important factor in shaping the cultural organizations structure. Organizational structures that have power differences and organizational structures that do not will be quite different.
