The more power you have, the better you are able to get the job done. Ignoring the external and internal politics surrounding your project can be hazardous.

Most project managers have enormous responsibility but not enough formal authority. Successful project managers understand the need to evaluate power and political dynamics and the importance of managing stakeholders through leadership and influence. Analyze the political landscape in your organizations and learn how to convert your adversaries into your allies. Uncover ways to manage politics at the project and upper management levels.

In this highly-interactive workshop, you'll evaluate, improve, and discover methods for increasing your total power while learning practical guidelines for successfully influencing without formal authority and increasing your leadership effectiveness by using the art of positive politics. You will learn many practical tips to create a climate of more collaboration, teamwork, synergy, commitment and motivation for getting things done and leading people to their peak performance.

Learning Objectives

Using small group activities, skill practices, case studies, lectures, diagnostic questionnaires and facilitated group discussions, participants will gain practical skills to:

  • Recognize the importance of human factors in Project Management.
  • Identify eight sources of power and evaluate your own power level.
  • Develop strategies to increase your total power.
