Our Topic: Political Intelligence

Ideas Architect PodcastOne of the major challenges within teams and organisations is how change takes place. And, from this base, Mike has started to address this issue under the banner of Political Intelligence.

Political Intelligence is not what you might think. At least, it wasn’t what I thought it was. It’s less about politics and more about relationships, collaboration and working together. As Mike suggests, it might just be the undiscovered leadership competency of the 21st century. And, I particularly like the connection of foresight and political intelligence (22 mins in).
