ORGANIZATIONAL SAVVY: LEVERAGING YOUR STRATEGIC INFLUENCE

 
Leaders of companies claim politics isnít important or doesn't exist. Yet, every day, results and careers in organizations suffer from power plays, inflated egos, turf battles, hidden personal agendas, deception, and bad mouthing. Successful leaders know how to manage organizational politics and use it to their benefit. This workshop adjusts attitudes about power and politics, confronts naiveté about organizational dynamics, and provides practical strategies for building organizational impact with integrity (e.g., ethical lobbying, addressing hidden agendas, promoting yourself with integrity, respecting turf and ego, etc.). This session is designed to benefit those well-intentioned individuals whose lack of political skills leaves them vulnerable to being underestimated, sabotaged, and denied credit for their ideas and work.
