You don’t have to love office politics. You don’t have to play office politics. You do need to know the rules though, to steer clear, or stay off the field.
Not knowing and understanding office politics can hold you back. Even if you aren’t ambitious, it can make you vulnerable. As vulnerable as the kid the first 10 seconds of this YouTube video.
We’d like to think corporate life is more like this kid but it’s not.
My political acumen newsletter is short, helpful and thought-provoking… if you want more there’s always my blog.
I answer all of my emails personally, so just email me if you have a question.
One last thing. Chances are you joined up to the newsletter because you need your team to be more politically astute. I can’t email them without their permission, but you have 3 options:
1. Ask them to subscribe
2. Forward relevant emails to team members
3. Use these emails as discussion points at your team meetings and offsites.
Thanks for joining me; I hope you and your team benefit greatly from it!
