A large body of research suggests that success in the boardroom is not drive by subject matter expertise, but rather by political skills. Success at a senior level is dependent of your ability to understand the unwritten rules about who gets power and how to effectively exercise that power. Professor Jolly at London Business School has been researching and teaching senior professionals and executives about how to navigate in situations where people’s interests are incompatible for over thirteen years and, during this session, will be sharing the key frameworks and practical skills to allow you to survive and thrive complex boardroom dynamics.
