The eight influence tactics are silent authority, assertiveness, information control coalition formation, upward appeal, persuasion, ingratiation and impression management, and exchange. (McShane & Von Glinow, 2013)
Silent authority: I did not see a way to apply this type of authority with the university instructor.
Assertiveness: You can threaten to go to your instructors boss.
Information control: If an instructor needs my student id in order to put a negative note into my assignment and I refuse to give him/her the control of that information.
