If you find dealing with office politics difficult and painful, would it help to know you’re not alone? In one survey, nearly 3 out of 4 professional women cited office politics as their biggest career frustration. But other research shows that political skill can be a force for good, and “positive political savvy” is a leadership skill that anyone can learn.
In this session, participants will learn:
- Why you can’t afford to ignore office politics
- What the data tells us about women and workplace politics
- Four skills used by people who are positively political
- The Shadow Organization Map: a tool for developing your organizational astuteness
To get the most of out of this session, bring some paper and pens, pencils, or markers in a variety of colors. Get ready to engage your curiosity, become a student of social dynamics, and develop your positive political skill.
