Navigating Corporate Politics
(Because if you don’t do politics, politics will do you)

A one day workshop with Niven Postma

“I’ve always had a very negative perception of corporate politics- today I’ve learned that politics is in fact managing my stakeholders and its a critical career skill.”
Risk Underwriter, Hollard

“I’ve been in banking for 26 years- I learned more today than I ever thought possible. I just wish I had attended this workshop much earlier on in my career.”
Global Markets, Absa Capital

Numerous studies have shown that political intelligence is the best overall predictor of job performance and career success and that people with political intelligence do better in gaining personal power, advancing their career, managing career and job stress and impacting organisational outcomes.

And yet, how many times have you heard people say (or perhaps said yourself) that:
“Things would be so much better around here if it weren’t for the politics!”

“I wish I could just get on with my job instead of playing all these games.”

“Navigating Corporate Politics” is a one day workshop that helps delegates understand that corporate politics are inevitable. As such, knowing how to manoeuvre them well and ethically, shouldn’t be seen as a choice but as a critical ingredient for career success.

The workshop covers, in an engaging, interactive and personal way,:

  • What corporate politics actually are
  • The secrets and skills of people who are good at politics
  • What political pitfalls really should be avoided
  • The crafting of an individual political game plan for each delegate
