March Lunch Meeting with SDA — Five Bases of Power

Please join us for our joint lunch meeting with the Society for Design Administration on March 22Please note that the date and place are not the same as our regular SAAEMA lunch meetings.

Leaders often rise or fall based on their ability to influence others towards effective action. This session is all about influence – how to get it, how to respond to it and how to leverage it in order to emerge as a leader and get things done.

A notable study conducted by social psychologists John R. P. French and Bertram Raven divided power and influence into five separate and distinct forms – coercive, reward, legitimate, referent, and expert. Jokake Construction Marketing Director Maisha Christian Hagan wants to help you advance within your personal and professional life by teaching you when and how to utilize the Five Bases of Power.

After this program, you’ll be able to:

  • Better understand why you’re influenced by others.
  • Better recognize your own natural sources of power and how you tend to influence others.
  • Build your leadership skills by using and developing your own sources of power, appropriately, and for the best effect.
  • Develop strategies to respond/manage others’ styles of influence.
Maisha (pronounced my-ee-sha) Christian Hagan is a juggler. No, seriously. Not bowling pins or  flaming torches, but projects, deadlines and to-do lists. As Marketing Director responsible for internal and external marketing efforts at Jokake Construction, Maisha occupies the space where strategic and creative business solutions intersect. She has a passion for people, a mind for business and a gift to teach. Maisha’s talks are always engaging, energetic, smart and fun — just like her. When she’s not at work, Maisha is actively involved with her church’s leadership team, writing, singing, and participating in mud/obstacle races with her husband and friends.
