Influence Others with Political Savvy


When dealing with power and influence you will inevitably have to navigate political waters. Most everyone knows that 'politics' are a reality in organizations and even if you dislike them, you cannot eliminate them. Just think about those who have position power – chances are they got there not just through their individual know-how, but because they know who's who, how to appeal to them, and how to build coalitions of power and influence.
