About this title:

Synopsis: Break into the power circle and build relationships that advance careers

The Politics of Promotion offers women the tools and guidance they need to successfully navigate the realities of their organization, emphasizing the need to understand office politics to get the promotions and recognition they deserve. Written by Bonnie Marcus, a professional coach who focuses on helping women advance their careers, this book demonstrates the impact of relationships and sponsorship on career trajectory. Readers will learn why excellence and achievement aren't propulsion enough to get ahead, and how networking with power and intention can make all the difference in perception, reputation, and promotion. Far beyond the typical advice of "be assertive" and "embrace ambition," this book provides a unique and proven method for becoming a bigger player in the workplace and avoiding unexpected trip-ups that can add years to the climb—or end it for good.

Many women focus on performance, thinking that good work garners promotion. Too often, they're left outside of the circles of power and influence where decisions are made that affect their careers. The Politics of Promotion provides a framework for breaking into that circle, and taking control of one's own career path, specifically showing how to:

  • Navigate office politics successfully
  • Build and nurture key relationships
  • Get comfortable with self-promotion
  • Avoid potentially disastrous "blindsides"

Women who want to advance cannot afford to view politics as "dirty." It's the reality of the workplace, one that differs between organizations and fluctuates over time. Although being savvy about office politics is important for both genders, unconscious bias and stereotypes create special challenges for women. Learning to navigate these complex rules and customs is the key to professional recognition for women, fostering relationships that reach far beyond the next evaluation. Women looking to get ahead will find that the insights in The Politics of Promotion can help smooth the way.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for THE POLITICS OF PROMOTION

"If you're one of those nice girls who thinks politics is a four-letter word, think again. From promotions to perks to plum assignments, savvy women know the path to success is paved by politics. The Politics of Promotion will help you to make workplace politics an integral part of your skill set without feeling as if you've compromised your integrity."
—Lois P. Frankel, PhD, author of Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office

"Bonnie Marcus has finally come out and said what needs to be said: self-promotion is a leadership skill! The Politics of Promotion should earn a place on every woman's bookshelf. Marcus not only demonstrates why playing politics zestfully, skillfully and ethically is essential for women seeking to shape satisfying careers, she offers invaluable advice on how to do it. This book offers a perfect wake-up call for women who want to believe that working hard should be enough. It's not. Bonnie Marcus shows you a better path."
—Sally Helgesen, author of The Female Advantage; coauthor of The Female Vision

"The Politics of Promotion is a savvy book, full of advice for ambitious women. Bonnie Marcus explains that success follows not only from competently fulfilling one's job description but even more from successfully negotiating company politics. To help women navigate these complexities, she offers a wealth of advice backed by examples gleaned from her long experience as a corporate executive and a career coach. Marcus provides the crucial insights that business schools leave out of the curriculum."
—Alice Eagly, coauthor of Through the Labyrinth

"Sheryl Sandberg taught women about the importance of 'leaning in' in order to get ahead in the workplace. In The Politics of Promotion, Bonnie Marcus gives women practical tips on how to be savvy about the way they lean in to avoid potential landmines, how to navigate the realities of their workplace, and position themselves for success without compromising their feminine traits or integrity."
—John Gerzema, author of The Athena Doctrine

"The Politics of Promotion totally reframes the concept of office politics. Bonnie Marcus clearly and practically explains how the work environment must be understood for anyone hoping to advance their careers. Through research, case studies, and a variety of powerful vignettes, the book offers insights for all individuals—women and men—who seek to be more successful, eliminate roadblocks, and deliver for themselves, their teams, and their organizations."
—Susan B. Chodakewitz, President, Tetra Tech AMT; Chair of the Board, Women in Aerospace
