Re: Hw to Handle office politics??

did anything happen that triggered that?

could be due to some misunderstanding

not everything needs to be generalised as office politics

office politics is the worst which turns all things around office nasty. I Simply hate it, to be safe from office politics just be lucky and not to be too smart....

Re: Hw to Handle office politics??

IMHO, the best way to handle such things, is to separate the personal things with work. And also, to thrash things out rather than to assume things throughout your working life.

In the office, I act 'blur', in order to get myself out of such situations. Just try to be friendly to your colleagues (I'm of the doctrine that it's hard to find frdship in the office, esp within the same team), and do get to know the going-ons, but don't dabble/get yourself involved in office politics.

Usually the interpersonal relationships and office politics are the ones that are harder to tackle than the work itself..hmm. my 2 cents' worth.

Agreed. Tried talk with your colleague and check what happened which may cause them to avoid you, etc... Its possible that some actions/words you speak/do annoyed them... Or perhaps gossiping which is the most common reason in office politics.

i do agree to a certain degree on this issue...

so wat i always recommend is when the 1st day u go to work... try befriends those who are the popular ones... and once u gain their trust of approval, u r free to build ur own friendship with whoever u like... but all u need to do is just maintain normal greeting with those popular ones...

cos this way, ur chances of being boycott is cut to the minimum...

Re: Hw to Handle office politics??

well it depends on ur job scope.... techncally speaking... since she ur assistant manager.. her order definally override ur other colleague.... however.... if ur job scope is to help ur colleage den wat u should do is tell ur assistant manger tat u have done till where bt ur portion of the job has something urgent need to attend to will try to come back help her asap...

bt of cos if u already know u suppose to help ur colleague n yet u go help ur assistant manager without telling her den ya... u finding trouble for urself...

or maybe XYZ told something bad to ABC then it spread like wirefire well u know rumors. actually it gets worse with each person adding on pepper and salt. or maybe its bonus or promotion time where everybody will be on guard 24/7 at the workplace. who knows? or u wan to invite 1 to 1 and ask them gently the reason why?

Re: Hw to Handle office politics??

office politics are definitely hard to handle..it can be caused by almost anything.. the best way to handle it? usually people will avoid.. but i will play mind games with that person.. tire him/her mentally and let that person know that i am not a nice person to play with.. haha..

do what your heart tells you.. dont show signs of hesitancy...that only makes things worst.. know what you are doing, that you are doing work, and that will be enough

Yes, your own company and office. Be your own boss, then fire off anybody who plays politics as you deem fit.... that is, if you have the resources to start your own biz in the 1st place... but there's still some... sad to say, unless you're sole prop running the biz alone.
