When most people think of office politics, they have a visceral negative reaction. But here's the thing: When you learn to navigate these unspoken rules of the workplace, you can achieve more than you ever dreamed! This is particularly important for you since you have to navigate many different types of people in creating a great place to work that cultivates talent and drives engagement. This session will teach you:

  • The psychology behind how people at all levels make decisions at work, and
  • How to use the dynamics of your organization to gain influence, advance your priorities, and use politics for good rather than for evil.
  • How to build better working relationships with co-workers across your organization.
