Political Savvy overcomes the taboo of discussing organizational politics. It debunks the stereotype of politics as a ‘shark’ infested manipulative underworld. Political Savvy shows how influence can actually increase by operating ethically and ‘above board’.

Using tools like the 51% guide, agenda linking, credibility pathing, and political mapping, the Political Savvy approach gives practical hope to those jaded by organizational politics to become ‘impact players’ and leaders.
