Publisher's Summary

Don't let destructive drama sideline your career.

Every organization has its share of political drama: Personalities clash. Agendas compete. Turf wars erupt. But you need to work productively with your colleagues - even difficult ones - for the good of your organization and your career. How can you do that without compromising your personal values? By acknowledging that power dynamics and unwritten rules exist - and navigating them constructively.

    "Bare Facts!"

    It's such important to understand the details behind people's actions, verses the underlying environmental dynamics in order to make a difference.

    "learned a bit but not alot"
    What did you like best about HBR Guide to Office Politics? What did you like least?

    There were 3-4 points I learned from this book. Basically avoidance mainly. I was disappointed to be honest. I found the book to be a bit bland and light on knowledge. I worked in large consultancies like Accenture and deployed in to Public sectors in the UK. So I am not a novice to the ladder or office politics. Which is probably why I didn't find this book helpful.


    What could Harvard Business Review and Karen Dillon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Give techniques on how improve? the review basically just outlines office mechanics. There is no real suggestions to improve it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Add more practical advise, even if it was practice mindfullness to cope better in xyz. Just add more useful information on how to cope.


    Did HBR Guide to Office Politics inspire you to do anything?

    no
