Can You Bury Your Head in the Sand When it Comes to Politics at Work?

At HBR today this question is answered. Much as many, if not most of us, would prefer to ignore politics at work, whether for profit or not, wherever people come together with different views and in competition, politics exists.  When we’re young, it’s possible to be purists.  People enjoy mentoring us.  We remind them of their younger selves.  As we mature, it’s nearly impossible to not get in the way of someone else’s goals.  To accomplish theirs, some people engage in virulent forms of politics.  Hopefully, you don’t work at a place where that’s the norm.  But it’s always a good idea to go into any job with your eyes open.  In this article, you’ll find some good places to start.
