When most people think of office politics, they have a visceral negative reaction. But here’s the thing: When you learn to navigate the unspoken rules of the workplace, you can achieve more than you ever dreamed! Playing Politics offers five concepts you need to know based on the science behind how human beings make decisions at work. It’s a crowd pleaser, a talk that will entertain, inspire, and offer practical advice for improving your office effectiveness.
1) Understand the psychological drivers of how people make decisions at work.
2) Build better relationships at work with people at all levels in your organization.
3) Inspire you to think differently about the dynamics of your organization so that you can be an influencer and change agent, using “politics” for good rather than for evil.

I started Zen Workplace in 2012 because I’m passionate about making work better. After earning an MBA and a PhD in Psychology (specializing in industrial/organizational psych), I set my sights on helping individuals and organizations to create more productive and fulfilling work experiences by combining organizational and positive psychology with mindfulness strategies.
Today I work with clients all over the world. When they follow my advice, they are able to measure increases in their employee engagement, team resilience, and in their productivity (up to 30%!) just by changing the way they work together.
If that’s what you’re looking for, get in touch. I live in the greater Boston area but travel all over. I’d love to come share my methods at your organization or with your event attendees. You can also find me writing about making work better as a contributor to Forbes or as the author of Zen Your Work: Create Your Ideal Work Experience Through Mindful Self-Mastery.
