Systematic Approaches to Leadership Behind-the-Scenes
While most people are wary of organization politics, politically
savvy leaders know how to manage them. They take initiative, and
they forge consensus. Ultimately, they help others maximize their
impact, so the organization can continue to thrive in a highly competitive
future. Learn the Leadership and Management Skills you or your
executives need to navigate corporate politics positively and successfully!
leadership without a firm grounding in organization politics risks
becoming hollow rhetoric. Political Savvy discusses how successful
leaders at all levels in the organization operate ethically behind-the-scenes
to work the darker side of organizational life.
The book helps you analyze your own political style, (yes, everyone
has one) and understand the strategies and tactics used by ethical
leaders. Through quotes, grids, tools, a case study, mapping techniques
and examples, the book provides a systematic, practical guide to
navigating political minefields so you can increase your influence
in the organization, coach others, and obtain the career success,
satisfaction, and meaning you want from work.
