Group Politics: People, Power and Perception

 Group politics are important whenever people with competing goals and limited resources must work together. It’s like watching foxes, birds and elephants competing for access to water. No wonder we call some people ‘political animals!’  

What turns people into political animals? Are politics always bad? In this session you will learn a 2-dimensional model to identify different types of political animals in the jungle. Then you will learn a simple framework for taming the animals and handling any political situation.  

Group Politics is available as a lecture or half-day seminar

Learn a new approach to networking, how to make effective contacts in a short time, and how to get the most out of your networking opportunities.  Building a Powerful Network is available as a lecture or half-day seminar

Leave with specific techniques for finding and engaging each one, what to expect, and what your role is in the relationship.  Mentors, Sponsors and Advocates is available as a lecture or half-day seminar
