WEBINAR: Developing Political Acuity
Organization: Ontario Municipal Leadership Institute (OMLI)
Location: Canada, Ontario, Barrie
Date: April 27, 2017
Date End: April 27, 2017
Today more than any time in our recent history, the need for "political acumen" as a critical skill is obvious. Given the competing interests and the complexity of government, the public expectations demand that public servants remain professional, non-partisan policy advisors.
The political awareness and knowledge required by public servants would suggest that they can manage these competing public and political interests, as well as the various stakeholder relationships, protocols and practices, to produce better policy and strategic advice.
We call this political acumen and as public servants we are constantly striving to make sense out of the chaos. Political Acuity is about how you exercise your judgement; using your knowledge and understanding of the various facets of an issue, the drivers and the stakeholders and how you develop your approach to the issue, as well as knowing when and how to act.
For your convenience, recorded versions are also available.
