About this series

The paradox of office politics is that most individuals believe that they don't do it, while, at the same time, they are active participants in it. Nobody’s doing it, yet it flourishes and everybody knows it’s there. This happens not only because of the people's reluctance to admit that they play the game but also because many individuals are unaware of their own intentions and actions. Intention plays a crucial role in office politics because it shapes the motives behind one's behavior. When someone is lobbying for a promotion, their intention might be to advance their career, but their actions might include sabotaging colleagues or taking credit for other people's work, which can create negative consequences. Awareness and consciousness are also important factors in office politics because they allow individuals to understand the impact of their actions on others. For instance, if someone is aware of their own biases or blind spots, they can take steps to address them and avoid making decisions that may be perceived as unfair or discriminatory. Similarly, being conscious of power dynamics and the potential impact of one's actions on others can help individuals navigate office politics more effectively. Throughout "The Zen of Office Politics: How to Stay Calm, Confident and Sane in a Jungle of Drama, Competition and Emojis", you will be guided through a series of concepts and strategies that will help you decide in a conscious and strategic way if, how and when to engage in the inherent office power plays. Each e-book is designed as an one-shot short read, requiring between 30 minutes and one hour. eBooks in this series:
