THE HIDDEN LANGUAGE OF ORGANIZATIONS - WORKPLACE POLITICS, POWER AND INFLUENCE

 
Accomplishing the goals and objectives of any organization requires more than just smart employees who work hard. It requires savvy employees who know how to forge alliances and avoid animosities in order to be effective. In this session, participants will identify which of the rules of "positive politics" they are most likely to violate; obtain guidelines for their own conduct and for managing relationships with co-workers and their own manager; learn to avoid pitfalls in business communication, both oral and written; learn eleven ways to recognize who really holds power and has influence in any organization; become adept at tapping into the power structure within an organization; explore a real-world case study that involves numerous political issues; learn how to network in order to expand their influence and recruit supporters for their initiatives and career; identify developmental needs that may prevent them from becoming "movers and shakers" in their own organizations; and enhance their working relationship with their manager.
