Positive Politics (TD1743)

Tue, 30 Aug 2022 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: Wine-Price Building

Description: Organizational politics are often described as a negative concept but the reality is that they are here to stay.  In this session, we will introduce and discuss the concept of positive organizational politics.  Through a series of non-threatening activities, participants will learn how power relates to organizational politics and will be able to describe methods of coping with its negative aspects.  In addition, attendees will better understand the behaviors necessary to successfully practice positive organizational politics themselves.  It is hoped that by practicing these behaviors, job-related success will be enhanced and stress will be reduced.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Define and better understand positive and negative organizational politics
  • List methods of coping with all types of organizational politics
  • Describe behaviors associated with positive organizational politics
  • Create a plan to improve a real-life situation by practicing positive organizational politics


Facilitated by: Rick Larson, AVP, Human Resources, Training and Performance
