To be successful in today’s modern business world, leaders must understand the dynamics of power and influence and the effects they have on their organizations. Managing your power and influence is essential in leading your organization towards its established goals.

Power is the ability to effectively get things done in your organization. Effective leaders understand where their power comes from, the amount of power they have, and how to use this power to influence those around them. The amount of power a leader has determines the amount of influence they have on others in their organization so it’s important to know where this power comes from.

Navigating organizational politics, obstacles, and corruption are essential in avoiding the most common derailers in organizations today. This talk by Dr. Mabel Miguel will explore power and influence and how to use these as effective tools to achieve personal and organizational goals.

The evening will begin with networking between 6-6:30 PM. A free buffet dinner will be available. The talk will begin promptly at 6:30 PM. 

The event will be held on the second floor of Mez Contemporary Mexican, located at the corner of Page Road and Slater Road. Parking is free.
