Ethics & Office Politics

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

Skeptical? Don’t blame you. Bad politics can devour an organization through lost productivity from infighting and the critical absence of truth. Usually, one thinks of credit-stealing backstabbing gossipers who wreck havoc on innocent employees’ careers. In fact, so much so, that some decent people won’t risk the climb on the corporate ladder because they don’t […]

Not Your Traditional Office Politics

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

I spent years in deep denial about office politics. I flatly refused to believe it was necessary to “play” politics in order to succeed. And – with a symbolic if not actual stamp of my foot – if it was necessary, then I’d sacrifice my career on the altar of my disdain! Many people confound […]

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

When we join a new company, we’re all hoping for a fresh start and clean slate. The last thing we want is to get embroiled in political intrigue, regardless of how petty it might seem. Most of us just want to do our work and move along with our lives. Even if this were so, […]

Literal Office Politics

Friday, November 5th, 2010

When it comes to dealing with literal office politics between employees, two perfect cliches spring to mind. The first is ‘silence is golden’; essentially, it is mostly easier for all concerned if politics is never discussed between you and your colleagues – the potential for argument and resentment is simply too great. If, however, the […]

The Politics of "Change" and What it Teaches Salespeople

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

As we enter yet another Presidential election season, the politics of “change” have taken center stage (which they always do after eight years of any President). Both candidates are scurrying about trying to present a strong image of change. There is a lesson that we as salespeople can learn from this Presidential election. As salespeople, […]
