February 2005, Article 8
Hi, I'm doing an Organizational Behavior on office politics but I could not find much information on the internet. The topic goes like that: "Why is office politics often feared? Is there a positive dimension to office politics? Suggest how office politics can be used productively? I really need some help on this topic, do you think you can help? would deeply appreciate.
It sounds like you want me to write your essay for you?! Hmmm... I wonder what your teacher would think of me spoon-feeding the answers to you? The whole www.officepolitics.com site is a wealth of research material. Use it! All of the questions you asked can be answered if you take the time to read a fraction of the letters that have been sent in. It's a good exercise in thinking, and something your teacher would want you to do.
