Positive-, Zero-, and Negative-Sum Power Relations

 

Give examples from the last month or so where you participated in a positive-sum, a zero-sum, and a negative-sum power relation.  Describe what motivated you to participate in a negative-sum or a zero-sum relation?  Are there factors other than “power” that we should be considering?
