AGGIORNAMENTO PERMANENTE
IN PERSON
Political skills in the company: managing a group with cunning and awareness (but remaining ethical)

Sede Da Definire UDINE

In the company, being called "good politicians" is sometimes associated with a lack of fairness, disloyalty, and being willing to do anything to gain personal advantages, even at the expense of colleagues and the organization.
But is it really regrettable to act politically in a company? How is it, then, that those who have good political skills in the company not only have more success but, sometimes, are also leaders highly esteemed by colleagues?
To what extent is being politically shrewd an advantage for yourself and for the company? How to become one?
Through a discussion with Adrian Furnham, professor of organizational psychology and world-renowned author, participants will reflect on how political action at work can be not only ethical, but also beneficial to themselves, colleagues, and the company in general.
In particular, the meeting will focus on:

  • the 4 key policy skills
  • Distinguishing who exploits political skills ethically, and who doesn’t
  • how to learn to be "politically shrewd"
