Leadership success relies on political acumen. It isn’t about playing politics; it’s about being effective as a person, a manager, and as an organisational leader.
Programs I offer:
As a leader you rely on your team. They don’t just make you look good, they also can make you look bad
A happy, masterful, well-coordinated team can produce miracles. A poor performing team can let you down no matter how smart, clever or influential you are. Click here for signs that your team is lacking in political acumen.
Having the skills to navigate through the snakes-and-ladders of corporate relationships is something you owe yourself and your team.
Leadership success: True leaders are politically astute
By consciously developing your political acumen, you can:

True leaders build their team’s political acumen
Your success and your team’s success doesn’t only depend on how well you operate in the organisation. If you truly want your team and your team members to be successful, it’s your responsibility to ensure they act astutely. And if they haven’t got the natural gifts, mindset or incentives to do so, you need to act.
While these programs are public, I can work with you to create a program specific to your team, your context, your strategic challenges.
