2021 Career Experts Virtual Series: The Relevance of ‘Office Politics’ in the Virtual World

The Relevance of ‘Office Politics’ in the Virtual World

‘Office Politics’ very often has negative connotations. But surely it’s a thing of the past, now that we’re working from home more and more? Not quite! Where there are different people with varying interests, motivations and behaviours, organisational politics – in person or a screen away – will also be present. In this virtual session we will introduce you to different types of political ‘animals’, show you how to identify them in virtual meetings and conversations, and share with you tips on how you can develop the necessary skills for a more positive political impact and be less fearful of ‘Office Politics’ as a result.

Joanna Gaudoin

I help individuals in the financial and professional services sectors achieve greater career success, and their organisations improve business performance, by working with them on their personal impact and relationship building skills. Prior to establishing my own business, I spent 10 years in marketing and consultancy, so I know the issues individuals face and what it is really like working in a large organisation. It is frequently people and relationships, whether they be colleagues, clients or partners that are at the root of the biggest challenges.

I am highly experienced at running workshops on all aspects of the impact we have on others, how to engage with them and how to build great professional relationships. I have also worked in-depth with many clients one-to-one helping them to work out what is holding them back regarding their impact at work and how they relate to others and the practical steps they can take to improve their situation and progress their career. Examples have included helping clients work on their personal impact to improve engagement and exposure with more senior colleagues, helping clients navigate challenging relationships at work and working with clients on all aspects of looking for a new role, from creating their LinkedIn profile and CV through to having a positive and memorable impact at interview.

My work is based on improving your self-awareness, developing the knowledge you need to work on what you have discovered and then putting into practice what you have learnt. With a client, my priorities are to be approachable, attentive and practical to help them be their best self at work and achieve what they want to.
