Developing Political Savvy in the Workplace
Even if you’ve never run for office, politics are a big part of your career. Internal politics are at play every time priorities and budgets are set, initiatives are given the green-light, and promotions are discussed. In this session, we’ll help you gain politically savvy by arming you with the communications, networking, and negotiating skills. Via engaging activities and compelling examples you will learn to tell an effective story about what you can accomplish, leverage relationships to your advantage, and ensure your ideas are heard.
