Share Power, Influence & Politics in Project Management (2 Day)

Event Details

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. They cannot succeed without the proper understanding of power and how to use it effectively. Successful project managers recognize the need to evaluate power and political dynamics and the importance of managing stakeholders through influence.

Identify eight forms of power and evaluate your own power level. Develop strategies to increase your total power and learn practical guidelines to influence successfully without formal authority. Analyze the political landscape in your organizations and learn how to convert your adversaries into your allies and manage politics at the project and upper management levels.

The techniques and reminders covered in this highly interactive and engaging workshop will give you many practical tips that you can immediately use to understand the dynamics of power and politics and learn how to use your power effectively in your own organization.
