Ascend Los Angeles Metro Chapter Holiday Celebration 2012
The holiday season is around the corner! We cordially invite you to join us for a festive holiday celebration with food, raffles, prizes and live entertainment by our guest and Ascend members! We will also have a presentation on "How to Navigate Office Politics" by Robert Half International.
Are office politics helping or harming your career? Politics are at play in virtually every organization, but how you handle sensitive workplace situations can make or break your professional prospects. This presentation reviews the common types of "political players” in the workplace, how to navigate office politics without compromising your career, and how managers can "lobby” for a winning workplace. (Qualifies for 1 CPE credit).
