Navigating Organisational Politics

July 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm WAT

Limited Spots. Welcome! To join the event, please register below.

About the Workshop

In this two-hour workshop, you will: 

  • Understand organisational politics—examine why it exists and how it functions; 

  • Increase your political savvy and practice four key skills to better navigate organisational politics; 

  • Assess your political environment and gain awareness of your mindset.

Developing political competence is an essential leadership skill. Being politically savvy or skilled informs our ability to leverage our influence to advance our own goals, as well as those of our teams and our organizations. The nature and intensity of organizational politics differs in each context. These politics are dynamic, explicit and implicit, and fundamental to the functioning of organizations. What are politics like in your context?

The negativity often associated with organizational politics creates hurdles to our ability and willingness to embrace them. The fact is that politics are natural. It would be naïve to deny that organizational politics can be potentially destructive, yet when leveraged strategically and effectively they advance our leadership efforts.

This session will help you reflect on and potentially reframe your relationship with organizational politics. The objectives of this session are to unpack what organizational politics actually are, to acknowledge that they can be burdensome, to recognize their value, and develop your ability to navigate them. Develop and refine politically savvy mindsets and skillsets which will enable you to navigate relationships more naturally and effectively. Join us to explore your political savviness and assess the political landscape in which you lead.
