Strategic Influencing and Politics with Integrity
This workshop is designed for senior managers who have to navigate the complexities of organisational politics and be influential in a political environment.
Why attend this workshop?
For many managers 'politics' is a dirty word. And yet politics are an inevitable fact of organisational life. The more senior you become, the more complex the landscape becomes and the greater the need to become politically smart in order to be influential. Contrary to popular belief it is possible to act politically without losing your integrity and this workshop will show you how.
We will explore the influencing process and identify some key strategies for being influential in the complex environment of organisational life. Participants will learn strategies and develop a plan for becoming more influential and achieving better results.
