Are you organisationally savvy? Individuals who are savvy know how things get done in their organisations. They pay attention to both the written and unwritten rules of the organisation and know how to use that power and influence. Savvy individuals understand that power and influence are the drivers of organisation politics. Most importantly, savvy individuals know how to manage key stakeholders and deliver organisational results.

Savvy individuals also recognise that not paying attention to organisational politics can results in career derailment. Consequently, savvy individuals have greater impact on important decisions, get credit for results they produce, are not blamed unfairly when something goes wrong, are not over looked-for promotions, and are able to get the resources they need to do their job well.

The truth is, organisation work gets done through politics. Politics, by itself, is neither good or bad. What gives politics its bad reputation is when some people use it in manipulative or self-serving ways. Savvy individuals know that it is possible to use politics in an honest and high integrity manner.

Elevating your savviness in dealing with organisational politics can help you get what you want in the world of work without compromising others in the process. This one-day workshop provides a clear overview of organisational politics and arms you with the core skills needed to manage different political styles. You will learn to use power positively while diffusing the efforts of those who abuse it.

**This programme is part of the Accelerate Workshop Series.
