FREE Career Webinar: HBR Guide to Office Politics

Every organization has its share of political drama: Personalities clash. Agendas compete. Turf wars erupt. But you need to work productively with your colleagues—even difficult ones—for the good of your organization and your career.

How can you do that without compromising your personal values?

By acknowledging that power dynamics and unwritten rules exist and navigating them constructively. Karen will help you succeed at work without being a power grabber or a corporate climber. Instead she will show you how to cultivate a political strategy that is authentic to you.

Karen will condense the information in her book during this productive career discussion to give you insights and ideas on how you can:

  • Gain influence without losing your integrity
  • Contend with backstabbers and bullies
  • Work through tough conversations
  • Manage tensions when resources are scarce
  • Get your share of choice assignments
  • Accept that not all conflict is bad

Join Karen and learn how to arm yourself with the advice you need to succeed on the job. The powerful how-to essentials she will share from leading experts will keep you from making serious mistakes that could cost you advancements and set back your career.
