This action-packed, intriguing program adjusts attitudes about power and politics, confronts naiveté about hidden organizational dynamics, and provides practical skills for building organizational impact with integrity. Participants will learn ways to understand organizational politics and power; achieve strategic influence, recognition; sell your ideas and positively impact the enterprise; ensure your career satisfaction and growth; build role credibility for your entire team; and prevent and protect yourself from being passed over, underestimated, marginalized, or sabotaged.
