You know that writing from this blog I am compelled to ask the question, "What is the quiet way to deal with the politics?" I like the suggestions coming from the Center for Creative Leadership in their April 2007 newsletter. Author Jean Leslie recommends four skills or approaches toward workplace politics:
- Think before you speak.
- Manage up — to a point.
- Practice influence.
- Hone your powers of perception.
- Learn to network.
- Be sincere.
Thanks for reading. Please lead quietly.
