Political Presence is a key competency for government professionals and an important part of having Political Acumen.. In these six sessions, mentors will explore how to navigate the impossible/impassable corner, where there are no easy answers and where your role requires you to tell your superiors that, in your professional opinion, the options to achieve their goals are slim or costly. In other words, what are the best ways to tell them what they may not want to hear? You will also hear from two leading academics on the importance of Political Acumen for government leaders.
You will gain a better understanding of:
- How to develop trust with the Minister and his/her staff
- Ways in which difficult or unpopular options can be presented to a Minister or DM
- How to create an environment in which staff at all levels can share the information they need to share with their superiors
- When to involve others such as the Chief of Staff or DM to the Premier
- How to work with a difficult Minister or DM
- and much more.
