Political Savvy can be defined as the ability to exhibit confidence and professional diplomacy, while effectively relating to people at all levels internally and externally.

Catalyst Fund Webinar Series: Access to US Congressional Correspondence Data (Lyrasis)
Constituent correspondence with the U.S. Congress captures the interactions between Americans and their elected representatives. Congress manages correspondence with proprietary systems, and data exported from these systems is donated to libraries across the country. The complexity, format, and sensitive nature of the exported data have posed challenges for repositories. No repository has processed these large data sets in a replicable way, and without a concerted effort, data is at risk of disappearing. The America Contacts Congress project, funded by a LYRASIS Catalyst Fund grant, provides a roadmap for preserving and providing access to this unique resource.

Making Difficult Conversations Easy (Effectiveness Institute)
Do you shy away from conflict? In organizations across the world conflict is avoided. Expectations go unmet, values are violated, and overall under-performance exists because people do not know how to effectively resolve issues without resorting to the use of power. This one-hour session introduces you to concepts that enable you to begin to “integrate conflict” – to walk into it and effectively handle it – rather than avoid it.
