Title: Navigating the Social Bases of Power to Influence Change
Lead Presenter: Jennifer Brown
Date: October 23, 2022    Time: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Room: D135, OCC
Abstract: Advisors and Advising Administrators are commonly in positions that reveal areas needing improvement within higher education settings. While they are often capable of identifying solutions that will ultimately improve the student experience, they are not always the ones with the power to affect immediate change. To successfully navigate leading change from the middle, advisors must understand both organizational change in the higher education setting and the theories surrounding the social bases of power and how to apply the power/interaction model for interpersonal influence to their benefit. This session will introduce these theories and explore mechanisms to translate them to practice. Attendees will learn to leverage the theories related to individual sources of power to influence positive change in the absence of formal leadership titles or decision-making ability. This session will include case study review and both small and large group discussion of strategies for success in leading from their current roles. Attendees are encouraged to bring examples from their own institution to explore with the group.
