Power and politics in organizations: Is it really that bad?

Date:
Tuesday, December 8th
Time:
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Description

Most of us think that “office politics” are bad and that political behavior is harmful to organizations. Some behavior that we consider political— backstabbing, deviousness, dishonestly, etc.—is wrong and can harm organizations.

However, not all political behavior in organizations is “devious” and wrong. In fact, not only is political behavior a normal aspect of social systems, but it also can play a vital role in productive organizational outcomes. This session will provide participants with a much deeper and useful understanding of political activity in organizations as well as insights regarding how they can enhance their own individual political acumen.

This is a complimentary event but advance registration is required due to limited space. Please register online until December 8 or until capacity is reached.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
