Synopsis: In today's organizations, career success depends more on political skill-the ability to influence, motivate, and win support from others-than on almost any other characteristic. Political Skill at Work delivers the "how" to influence at work, not just the "what."

The authors of this innovative study explore how people high in political skill are more successful at getting hired, building a reputation, and establishing leadership. From the worlds of business, politics, education, and sports, they offer compelling examples of political skill in action. And, for the first time, they provide ways to measure and enhance this powerful ability. Anyone interested in personal or professional development will find this book worthwhile.

From the Inside Flap: Organizational politics are a fact of life. For better or worse, organizations are political arenas in which informal negotiation, deal making, and coalition building get things done. Using political skill--motivating others, inspiring trust, orchestrating support--to influence these interactions is critical not only to personal job and career success but also to the performance of the organization as a whole.

This first comprehensive examination of political skill in the workplace integrates more than fifteen years of research in many different organizations. The authors examine how political skill works, how it can influence organizations, how it differs from intelligence and other characteristics, how it can be measured using their Political Skill Inventory, and how it can be enhanced. Real-life examples from business, politics, education, and sports vividly illustrate political skill in action.

Every professional can use POLITICAL SKILL AT WORK to good advantage. This well-documented book is especially important for managers, leaders, and anyone interested in human resource and organization development.
