EXECUTIVE SPIN — deliberately designed to keep your organization and your career on track
Driving change, whether organizationally or personally requires both technical and political competence. Executive Spin has the capability and expertise to help position you and your organization for success.
Your ability to successfully integrate professional and political competence significantly affects unit outcomes and career progression. Organizational politics is a fact of life and being able to distinguish between positive and negative politics is essential to ensure many ‘good’ managers are not left behind.
Change agendas exacerbate organizational politics. Managers who are familiar with the complexity of both concepts are more capable of succeeding in their role as change agents. Politically astute managers analyze organizational issues through a political lens allowing for more constructive ways of working with stakeholders to produce sustainable, effective action.
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.
