Political Martial Arts

Presented by: Paula Bell


How many times have you tried to move a project forward but politics stop you?  How many times have you tried to help others make decisions but politics get in the way?  How many times have you just been frustrated with the politics of the organization that you don't know what to do?  No matter what line of work you are in politics occurs.  As long as individuals and corporations exist, so will politics.  It's imperative that you don't let politics get the best of you.  Not all politics are bad, but the majority of the time politics has a very negative connotation.  Leveraging martial arts concepts to navigate the political waters, especially when deemed negative or challenging, can be extremely successful.  The martial arts concepts can help keep you focused on how to interact with those who tend to want to make everything political.

Learning Objectives:

  • The Framework
  • What is Politics
  • What is political martial arts and how to navigate the political waters
