Politics and Leadership

Join us for a SASFAA Webinar on December 15th , from 11:00 AM- 12:00 Noon EST!  

Join us for a webinar presented by Brent Tener, Leadership Symposium Faculty.

There’s more to “politics” than just going to the polls and voting for your candidate.  In the relational world you’ll often hear people talk about “politics” in learning how to relate to people from various levels within, and without, of your organization.  That can often be tricky to navigate.  Along with that is to ensure ethics are at the top of your list of traits you want to have when relating to others.  These two webinars are designed to discuss these very two important aspects of leadership. These two webinars scheduled on December 14th and December 15th are designed to discuss these very two important aspects of leadership.
