Summary
  • "If you sincerely want to enhance your 'comfort' when involved with others, especially in your work setting, The Office Politics Handbook is a must read." --Bernice Bass de Martinez, PhD, California State University, Sacramento "Regardless of the size of your organization or your position in it, The Office Politics Handbook provides useful insights about the inevitable reality of organizational politics and how to not only survive but succeed. This is a resource for individuals, as well as mentors and executive coaches who are seeking a framework to dialogue and problem-solve with their clients on how to overcome career hurdles." --Shirley J. Daniel, Ph.D., Director, Pacific Asian Management Institute, University of Hawai'i at Manoa The Office Politics Handbook is for business executives, managers, consultants, lawyers, agents, editors, and anyone who wants to become more politically astute, more powerful, and more successful. This is not a book on political game playing; it is for people who hate power games but who know that politics takes place in every organization and want to make sure they wind up on top of the heap...not at the bottom of the barrel. This book will explain why people are political animals, and why they engage in power-seeking behavior. It will also discuss different instruments of power to help you understand the cultural and collective forces at work in human nature, and the occasionally aggressive characteristics of the political animal. The Office Politics Handbook will show you how to: Cultivate your political skill Exercise power beyond your place in the organizational chart Defend yourself against political attacks Know when to fight, when to retreat, and when to lead"--
