You realize all organizations have their own unique cultures and organizational politics.

While you may have the facts on your side there is a certain “finesse” that is necessary to deliver your messages as a change agent and trusted advisor in your organization. And that comes from not only an understanding of the unique culture and politics in your particular organization, but a honed ability to successfully navigate it.

Being right is only part of the battle, and without guidance shared in this course, you just might be a bull in a china shop!

Being consistent in how you operate, and what made you successful in one culture can kill you in another.

Ignoring the culture and politics, and believing that facts will speak for themselves, is a usually a recipe for disaster, and will often get you fired.

Culture and politics are a part of every organization, so instead of complaining about it, not knowing how to play the game, and feeling sick to your stomach...

What if instead you could learn to use situational awareness, emotional intelligence, and get some practical advice from seasoned executives who’ve been there and done that.

Wouldn’t that make your job much easier?

Of course it would.

And this is one area you can’t afford to risk not being at the top of your game.

You could do 99 things right, but 1 one wrong time could torpedo your career. Trust me, I’ve been there.

Do you know how to act differently in an authoritarian culture versus a collaborative one?

Do you know the different levels and types of culture in organizations that you have to manage politically?

Get answers to these and other common questions about culture and organizational politics when you register now!
