Change intensies organizational politics. Managing change is no longer a ‘nice to have’ it is a key core competency. Research suggests that change agents who avoid politics are less likely to succeed in their roles. In other words, the change agent who is not politically active will fail. Successful implementations require change agents to be able and willing to intervene in organizational political processes, to inuence decisions and to cope with resistance – all without damaging one’s reputation. A project is not a project until it is sold both technically and politically.
Political skill is required to attract resources and support.
Professional competence will get your ‘idea’ heard, but it’s political competence that will get your idea implemented.
MANAGEMENT OF CHANGE
Taking charge of change! Change is multi-faceted. Informing and motivating employees is only half the battle; incorporating new behaviors and reaching a sustained level of performance involves a new set of leadership tools: inspiration, clarity of direction, support and feedback.
OPERATIONALIZING THE VISION
The most difficult first step in pursuing change, in any form, is to achieve a common picture. It is a challenging task but arriving at a ‘shared vision’ creates a cornerstone and sets a path forward for further ‘execution.’
Workshops focus on increasing employees’ awareness and understanding of positive politics and how a change environment exacerbates organizational politics. Politically savvy managers are skillful at achieving their goals and managing their careers. Politically competent employees are adept at staying on the organization’s radar.
