Playing Politics: Psychology of the Human Workplace

Mar 13, 2017

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

Office politics. Those simple words have been known to strike fear into the hearts of men, invoking eye rolls, groans, and declarations that you will never "play politics" at work.

But what if you could use office politics for good? This session will teach you the psychology behind the interpersonal aspects of the human workplace and teach you to harness the power of relationships and influence to get more done, be more innovative, and rally your team to do amazing work.
The Carnegie Foundation famously declared that 85% of job success comes from the soft skills. That's all office politics is. Stop fearing it and start using it and you'll get more done at work than you ever dreamed!
