This session will discuss strategies you can use to address politics in your workplace while building your influence with your supervisor and colleagues. 

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. During this session you will identify which of the rules of “positive politics” you are most likely to violate as well as obtain guidelines for being smart about your conduct, your business communication, your relationships with co-workers and your relationship with your supervisor. You will learn how to:

  • Recognize who really holds power and has influence,
  • Tap into the power structure within any organization.
  • Network effectively inside and outside your organization.
