Training 8: In Depth On Politics, Power Play, Ethics & Integrity

When should you follow this training?

When you experience too much politics and power play combined with too little ethics and integrity. And when this behavior is making your organization a neglected, non-agile, and unhealthy organization.


Key topics covered

The recruitment and talent development cycle are often influenced by politics and power play. Understanding your own natural power base, how you are perceived, and how you handle conflict. Why politics and power play lead to non-agile organizations. Learning to use the sixteen negligence parameters. Why do you need “old school” ethics. What makes “agile organizations” different?

Why Is This Training Program Different?

  • Some of the challenges you are confronted with are not solvable using ‘normal approaches’, standard methodologies and tools. In fact “Business Transformation”, when looked at in its full maturity, is a very broad domain.
  • The full program follows a logical pattern, to help you keep your overview and to connect the dots.
  • We give you some pre-read work and ask you to prepare your own case relating to the specific training you will be attending.
  • We give you a detailed syllabus, but only show the models ‘real live’ that will help you to get your head (and hands) around the topics you are facing.
  • You will also learn how your peers in other organizations are doing and what they face.


Simply put:

We look at your challenges in a down-to-earth and pragmatic way, allowing multiple angles, and using the experience of the participants and the trainer.

Most of all, we liberate what is inside you, but what you don’t yet understand or show, in order to deal with the topics at hand.
