Navigating organizational politics and growing great relationships

Layout canvas

"Organizational politics to me is really understanding the actions and agenda of different people that you interact with. Basically, what is it that is driving them and their actions...Every person is different and has life experiences that drive their actions. Having an understanding of not 'why' but 'how' someone acts will allow you to work ideally with, but if necessary, around them."
