Brandon Partners is a global training firm that cultivates the cutting edge leadership development workplace competencies of Organizational and Political Savvy, and strengthens the classic business competency of Interpersonal Savvy.

Since so few proven programs constructively address organizational politics and positive power, we made high-integrity political savvy our core business. Brandon Partners is the preeminent thought leader on transforming organizational politics from a taboo topic to an ethical and motivating channel for strategic influence and leadership effectiveness. Our history is rooted in ethical political savvy, but we also offer Straight Talk and other courses to shape interpersonal skills into a competitive advantage that drives results and accountability.

Why Organizational Savvy?

Our Organizational Savvy courses teach skills for navigating company politics and power dynamics with integrity. This cutting edge competency wasn’t on the leadership map 20 years ago, but now is mission-critical for achieving these business needs:

  • To enhance leadership bench strength and agility
  • To expand Strategic Influence and Organizational Impact
  • To build high-integrity cultures free from scandals
  • To foster career growth and employee retention
  • To empower technical and staff functions as strategic partners
  • To strengthen diversity and inclusion
