 Politics are those actions taken within an organization to use power and other resources to obtain ones preferred outcome in a situation in which there is uncertainty. If we consider that leaders are astute players of politics, the good news is that being politically smart is a skill that can be mastered. Each of us has a natural political style that can be made more effective. Your challenge is to learn how to play the game whilst simultaneously trying to improve the rules – learning how to read the environment, stay focused on goals and action steps, recognise where the power lies, identify the true motives and hidden agendas of others and maintain a sense of humour.
