Office Politics
Hello group members. I just attended a live conference with author and consultant, Niven Postma. She is the author of "If You Don't Do Office Politics, Office Politics Will Do You." She teaches office politics are not a bad thing, and you cannot avoid them, even during COVID. Politics are neutral, they are the efforts we engage in to get things done, and are comprised of 4 parts: 1. Influence 2. Relationships 3. Power 4. Perceptions I'm sure we can related to all of these. I appreciate having a different point of view of something that has a negative stigma. My last takeaway (and then I'd like to hear from you about positive office politics) was advice Niven Postma was given, "Some of the most important decisions made about your career are when you're not in the room. So, who is in the room for you and what are they saying?"
