About the Program
To create a desirable workplace environment and opportunities for advancement, one must master organizational dynamics. This requires navigating office politics – a necessary reality. This course teaches the “invisible” and “intangible” world of workplace politics and how to build leverage within this realm. Done right, these politics can benefit individuals and organizations. Participants will learn how to identify key political “rules” and tools for building leverage and social capital within an organization, while avoiding the pitfalls of dirty politics. In fact, it encourages ethical behavior that can create beneficial outcomes for the entire professional community.
