How smart are you? No, we don’t mean your IQ, we are talking about your Political Intelligence.
Everyone knows that Political Intelligence is a critical leadership skill. But why do so many people choose to “opt out” of engaging in organizational politics? We think the answer is because they see so many negative examples of bad behavior all around them. Leaders who do not understand the power and importance of organizational politics are usually left out of key strategic decisions, positions and opportunities. But do politics have to be so negative? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
We believe in Positive Political Intelligence™. The kind of politics that balances the needs of the individual with the needs of the organization; where we lead with collaboration and where effectiveness is gained through building relationships and not in spite of them. This is Positive Political Intelligence™. And at Tiara International, we practice this and teach this to leaders and organizations around the world.
“Politics is not what I do, it’s why you think I’m doing it.” ~ David Bancoft-Turner (Positive Political Intelligence)
