How to be a People Player and Win.
Don’t be a sucker! Nice guys finish last!

It’s nothing personal, just business. Like it or not, people politics is a fact of life. Whether in the office or on the street “the game” is always on. The world is becoming more competitive. Everyone wants to hire or associate with the brightest and the best. However, political skill will get you further than Emotional Intelligence or General Mental ability alone. The more you understand about people (their motives, drives, desires and strategy) then the happier and more successful you will be and the less likely to be deceived or played.

In this talk I’m going to help you “wise up” and be aware. I’ll present the dark arts of people politics that I’ve learned from being a corporate operations director and my experience as a Mental Toughness and psychological coach.

There will be content from the Legendary and Master Politicians, Philosophers, Psychologists and Players such as Machiavelli, Miyamoto Musashi, Sun Tzu, Jocho Yamamoto, Freud, Adler, Margret Thatcher, Tony Blair, The Mafia, Malcolm Tucker and of course Donald Trump

This is essential knowledge. If you don’t understand, your competitors and enemies will. Understand the games people play and avoid their traps. Spot the Narcissists and the Psychopaths that surround you. Use other’s emotions to your advantage; be compassionately ruthless.

Adapt, Improvise and Overcome; Turn adversity into opportunity.

Avoid the Manipulation, Influence and Charm of your adversaries

Understand the arts of Deceit and Deception and see through them.

Spot the chameleons and wise guys that lie with sincere authenticity.
