How to Make Office Politics Work For You

Jennifer Wisdom

“You are not crazy. So, if you’re talking to someone who makes you feel crazy, that’s probably something with that other person. If you’re working with someone who make you feel like you’re not good enough, there’s something else going on.” Jennifer Wisdom on Green Connections Radio

We all have office politics to deal with, even if you own your company or work remotely. If you work with other people, office politics are there on some level. It’s how people deal with each other. Listen to psychologist, author and coach Jennifer Wisdom explain to Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson how we can all understand our work relationships and how to manage them in this enlightening and practical interview.

 

You’ll hear:

  • How to figure out what the politics are in your work place.
  • What you can learn from the language people use and who gets which assignments.
  • The politics of being a woman in the workplace.
  • Three things women in middle management can do to advance at work.
  • And, great career advice for women (and everyone).

“Many of us bring to work (the family dynamics) we were raised with. So, if we were raised in a family where people didn’t communicate directly (for example), we grow up thinking that’s normal.” Jennifer Wisdom on Green Connections Radio
