Many women focus on their performance, expecting that if they excel and accomplish the most, they'll get the promotions and recognition they deserve. And yet, all too often, women are outsiders to the networks of power and influence where the decisions are made that affect their careers. They may view politics as dirty; they may be slow to self-promote, build and nurture relationships with key stakeholders, and seek sponsorship. The result? They get blindsided, experiencing deep disappointment when their hard work alone doesn't pay off with an anticipated promotion or raise. Ambitious women understand they must play politics, but how can they learn to do it successfully? The Politics of Promotion demonstrates to women the importance of understanding workplace politics and provides them with the necessary tools to successfully navigate the political realities of their organization. While there are many books that advise women to be more assertive and embrace their ambition, and books that address office politics, there is little information focused specifically on how women can successfully navigate the politics in the current work environment. The Politics of Promotion provides a unique and proven method to guide women through the complexities of office politics, so that they can avoid a political "blindside" that may sabotage their career.
