It's All Politics
IN THIS SUMMARY
Business is not a spectator sport. Regardless of skills and hard work, anyone who aspires to advance in business cannot afford to be apolitical. In It’s All Politics, Kathleen Kelley Reardon explains how an individual can effectively influence and manage people’s perceptions, convert enemies to allies, get a fair hearing for new ideas, and “get into the loop.” She uses specific case histories to illustrate techniques and strategies required for political success, such as becoming aware of clues that others miss, knowing when to give in gracefully and when to stand ground, as well as how to be persuasive, identify win and no-win options, and develop a political compass based on ethics and morals.
