IMS: Political Savvy: Advance Your Career
by Expanding Your Influence
Please contact Liz Arruda
firstname.lastname@example.org or extension 2330 if you are interested in
registering for this course.
While most are wary, great leaders know how to manage
organizational politics. This seminar vividly brings to life the
interplay of power, politics and influence, both upward and across
the organization. We will debunk the stereotype of politics as
emerging from an unethical manipulative underworld. The key is to
know the strategies that enhance our impact on the organization.
These strategies work hand-in-hand with the personal
characteristics and tactics of leadership that we may already
possess. Participants will learn to diagnose political styles and
map political terrains. Principles such as the 51% guide and agenda
linking will help participants navigate political dynamics,
demonstrate ethical leadership, and further career success.

*Institute for Management
St. John’s has a membership with the Institute for Management
Studies (IMS). This means that you will now have easy access to a
variety of management and professional development topics beyond
our standard curriculum. As an added benefit, we will give one
complimentary seat for each NYC session, on a first come, first
served basis (note: one complimentary seat per person, per year.)
See enrollment policy below.
Enrollment Policy Note:
There is a cost associated with IMS programs. Please ensure your
full commitment to attend before enrolling in an IMS program,
including your supervisor’s approval and coverage in your absence.
IMS retains a minimal number of seats for St. John's University
participants, and it is important that anyone who enrolls is
committed to attending as there is significant cost to the
University for last-minute cancellations.
