Political Intelligence

by Don Morley and David Bancroft-Turner

Political Intelligence

Are you a political animal? Of course you are – you’re a human being. Whether you dislike or enjoy the thought of getting involved in organisational politics, if you are part of an organisation – large or small – you are part of its politics.

So find out in this section what sort of political player you are. Are you are a sheep, a donkey, a fox or a wise old (or young) owl? Do you try to ignore politics? Do you think you know it all? Do you use your political skills strictly for your own ends? Can you play the win-win game?

Whatever the answers, you can start to improve your political intelligence – for your own good and the good of your organisation.
