About the Class

Politics are necessary, but they are not necessarily evil. If you think you can ignore politics and be successful you are wrong. Politics at work are a fact of life so why would think that you can just ignore them? A successful leader is a good politician, project managers are leaders therefore project managers are politicians too. One of the biggest mistakes you can make as a project manager is not to play politics.

Now, look at the phrase, play politics.  It does not have to be full of irony. Play indicates a good time. The wordplay has happy and positive connotations. That is why you should consider the power of positive politics. You can have fun while playing politics, you can enjoy the discussions, the networking and relationships, the negotiating, and the trade-offs. But politics is about power and “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Lack of power corrupts too If you do not have power then you cannot stand up for what is right. If you cannot stand up for what is right, you have no voice and in a sense, you are giving permission to those who use power inappropriately to continue using power inappropriately Positive politics is power used ethically. Don’t skip politics, play positive politics. Use your power for good Your team needs you to wield your power in order to help them overcome the obstacles they face while they work. It is wrong for you to sit back and let your time get pushed around simply because you refuse to play politics
