(Formerly “Women & Organizational Politics: Developing Power and Influence”)
Organizational politics plays a big part in how well things get done on the job. A high-performance career involves being comfortable with positional and personal power as well as knowing how to read organizational cues. To develop maximum leadership potential, women must be particularly savvy in dealing with this unspoken reality. Participants in this program will examine the various challenges around organizational politics, and learn strategies to proactively improve their power and influence through case studies, self-assessments and interactive discussions.
