Unfortunately, in today’s volatile economic climate no job is ever 100% secure. Layoffs, Right-sizing, Downsizing, Reductions in Force (RIFs) have become standard operating procedure for many companies. It is inevitable that at some point in your career you will be introduced to the word or experience called “layoffs”. And it often
doesn’t matter how good you are at your job; how hard you work or even if you were
just promoted. When layoffs hit, often the difference between who stays and who
goes comes down to two critical factors in one’s career journey.
- How well have you navigated your
organizations political landscape?
- The strength of your network to insulate
you with opportunities or endorsement when
times get tough?
Over 60% of employees who rate their job performance as “favorable” rate the
strength of their network as “poor”. This means that even if you are doing a great
job. If you are not connected to sources that will advocate for you when you are not in
the room, you become more susceptible to layoffs when downsizing occurs.

and how to use this leadership skill to navigate the political landscape to advance your career and build your brand. Participants leave with a powerful navigation tool to optimize the relationship quality of their connections with team members, clients and stakeholders and learn tools to expand their value across the enterprise.
When you master your network as you increase your technical capabilities you typically grow your business, increase your tenure in your role, advance faster in your

Hailed as a life-changing session. This presentation will radically transform how you manage your interactions, work performance and relationships to become more savvy in navigating the politics of success.
