Are you frustrated because your hard work isn’t noticed? Are you looking to move up and don’t know how? Michael Wenderoth joins Kevin to discuss the mindsets we need to change to not only promote ourselves but also our teams. For example, politics aren’t bad; they are just a mechanism by which decisions are made. Power is not a bad word. We need to understand power and learn how to harness its energy. When we reject the idea of power, we are immediately at a disadvantage. We need to leverage power to accelerate our impact.

He shares the sources of power, political skills, networking, control of resources, executive presence and communication, and visibility and brand.
