Politics, in their endless variations, are a reality in any organisation. Every day, in companies around the world, a corporate version of “Game of Thrones” is played. And what a game it can be; deceptions, power plays, direct sabotage and turf wars, all threatening to derail corporate results and individual careers alike.

The good news is that not all organisational politics are negative. In fact, it is possible to deal with, and manage, corporate politics positively and with high integrity. This helps not just to reduce stress and frustration but also increase chances of being recognised, promoted and/or given required resources and power to accomplish goals.

Elevating the savviness of employees in dealing with office politics can aid in reducing churn rate while aligning people towards achieving a company’s goals.

This one-day workshop provides a clear overview of organisational politics and arms participants with core skills to manage different political styles. This includes self-assessment of personal political blind spots and learning how to ethically manage issues that are important to individuals as well as organisations. Participants will gain clarity, and important practical strategies, to manage and even harness politics to gain success.
