Mike Phipps and Colin Gautrey's first book, 21 Dirty Tricks at Work, presented the most common political tactics used by individuals in the workplace. This book helped many people around the world handle these tactics in a constructive and assertive manner. What was not tackled were the more strategic political situations that people find themselves in when others exert their power and influence, the type of political campaigns that can leave individuals feeling bemused, fearful and paralyzed. Political Dilemmas at Work will present real political challenges in an original and engaging way - which will be instantly recognizable by any experienced manager. Then, based on the authors' experience of coaching managers and directors, they will offer analysis and practical tools and tips about how to deal effectively in these situations. With the workplace becoming more political and competitive by the day, Political Dilemmas at Work will come to the rescue. This book will become required reading for anyone who is ambitious and wants to ensure that they do not fall foul of negative organizational politics.
