Abstract: Organizational positions force managers to display certain behaviors. Because human behavior is shaped by complex psychological, biological, social and economic variables, managers must be aware of the issues mentioned and use the sources of power that create a sense of commitment in employees and must be able to change employees’ behaviors according to the requirements of the organization. In this descriptive study, the relationship between the five sources of managers' power and employee commitment in government organizations in Herat province from the perspective of employees has been determined by the use of survey method. The sample size was 360 people who were selected from 6758 employees in this province. The results show that there is a relationship between managers' power resources and employee commitment; and out of the five sources of power, the power of expertise and authority has positive relationships with employee commitment, and the power based on compulsion, law and reward has a negative relationship with employee commitment.
