In this workshop we focus on your personal playing profile: are you clever, wise, innocent or inept? Wise politicking will help you get what you want in the world of work without compromising others in the process.
Playing the political game is not necessarily something you enjoy doing. You might find it unfair, not transparent, and bordering on favoritism. We experience that some people are less comfortable and at ease with politics, leaving themselves unprepared, excluded or even victim from politics.
People and teams within organizations often have to compete for limited resources; this can lead to a kind of "tribal conflict" where teams compete to satisfy their needs and objectives, even when this is against the greater good. The result is competition between individuals or misalignment between the team's objectives and those of individuals within it. If you don't participate in the political game, you risk not having a say in what happens thus allowing people with less experience, skills or knowledge to influence the decisions being made around you.
The workshop will help you to understand how your attitude towards the political game helps you, or hinders you, to get what you want.
You will learn to play the game without bringing harm to others or the company in a way that you can put your qualities and talents at the service of your colleagues, your clients and your company. Office politics are a fact of life, you will learn to use its power positively while diffusing the efforts of those who abuse it.
