Mistake #16 Acting as if office politics will magically disappear Understand that while you may loathe office politics, there is a game in play. You must know the written and unwritten rules of your organization. You must strategically position yourself by leveraging your relationships and strengths. Although observation is necessary, you must do more than observe from the sidelines; you must insert yourself into the game at the right time so you can experience your win. | Fairygodboss

You should be social and selective, yet smart regarding culture which based on your comment, I believe is true for you. Politics are working in every environment, we simply need to remain authentic and make the politics work for us!

This is so true! I didn't want to be part of the gossip crew, so I stayed out of people's business. Well, that gets you on the outside of the circle of trust and when you're in a small company, you need those people to have your back.
