Office Politics Surviving and Thriving—If You’re Savvy

Being politically savvy is a vital competence for anyone working in an office/organizational environment, but it’s not taught often and, in many cases, understood. In fact, in my practice as a coach the term “office politics” has received a bad rap. (Words like “Machiavellian,” “manipulative,” and “conspiratorial” come to mind.) Tales of political sabotage, power plays, and turf wars are part of any organization’s history. Nonetheless, political competence is the one skill everyone wishes to have more of—but no one talks about it. When you ask people how they achieve results within their organizations, they cite market analysis,strategic planning, and brainstorming. They almost never mention politics.
