The aim of this article is to illustrate how an evidence-based conceptual framework for understanding political skills/awareness in public sector management can be adapted and applied to practice development. Jean Hartley and her colleagues’ work has influenced my practice as an academic leader, and my approach to the development of compassionate academic practice. Here I reflect upon how the framework can be used to enable practitioners to develop skills of political awareness in an interprofessional practice team context.
