It’s Not Enough To Do Good Work

by - m on 04/28/2011

People who are not politically skilled will be outmaneuvered in the creative workplace – in any workplace.

Don’t take my word for it.

Jeffrey Pfeffer in the HBR states, 

“salary and job progression depend on educational credentials, years of experience, social similarity, and political skill, not just performance (either individual or organizational). It’s not enough to do good work.”

Are you memorable?
Are you passionate?
Are you amiable?
Do you fit the culture?

Can you prove it?

Convince yourself.

Then convince them.
