In regards to office politics, you may have heard your colleagues say:

"I am good at what I do, so I don't need to care or worry about office politics."
"I'm too busy to care about that stuff, my boss can deal with it for me"
"I don't like game playing, so I don't get involved."

Any of these sound familiar? The unfortunate truth is that they are common misconceptions. Though your work product is your priority, it will be challenging to take on a leadership position and collaborate with colleagues from various departments in your organization without getting involved in workplace politics. To be successful in any profession, you must not avoid office politics, but instead find a solution to address them in a graceful manner.

If you want to get control of the office politics rather than let it control you, join this webinar with Career Development Guru and Author, Christine Brown Quinn (I'82). Christine will address:

-What lies at the heart of office politics and why does it matter?
-The 5 damaging mindsets that kill leadership potential
-How to develop your own personal strategy to make office politics work for rather than against you
