You've worked like dog for the last three months. You've put in late hours, skipped weekends and added extra business trips to your schedule. You've taken a dying division and added snap, crackle and pop to its bottom line. But when it came to bonus time, you were overlooked and your division under-rated. What's that all about? Rick Brandon and Marty Seldman, co-authors of Survival of the Savvy: High-Integrity Political Tactics for Career and Company Success, say it's all about career politics some people know how to play them and some people (maybe you?) don't. Ever had an idea stolen by someone brash enough to present it as his or her own idea at a VP meeting? If so, you really, really need this book. Brandon and Seldman offer serious research to substantiate this all-too-prevalent work problem and outline the many ways the politically inept can develop the savvy political instincts we all need to feel valued at our work.
