Is it necessary to deal with the dirty politics at the work place? Can't we avoid it.
Yes, be prepared to play. I recommend "Office Politics" by psychologist Oliver James. Very few people can earn a living working alone. The narcissist, psychopath and Machiavelism are prevalent in the workplace.
There are many ways. First is understanding human nature. Greed, ambition and politics are part of the human psyche. One of the best ways is to take control of it. I would recommend the teachings of Neville Goddard. It is too detailed to include it here. The essence of it is you have the power to change anybody or any situation to whatever you want it to be. You do it remotely, unseen, within your own consciousness, not directly. Then everything changes.
Hi H Bhorasawala,
Work place is not our home so the co-workers are obviously not our relatives. The dynamics of office environment always based on this fact that each worker has its own motive to join the particular office therefore has also his vision to achieve his goals. Keeping in view his goals, he has to choose best possible methods and some time such methods does not fall in ethical boundaries.
Politics on workplace is a fact and it is not possible to one can remain unaffected.
