Great post as always. I think we all struggle with office politics one way or another. I always think it’s important to check yourself when you’re feeling like something is amiss. Usually if something feels off, it is!

This one is super relatable Kax - great post. I've been working on how to get things done and navigate the office politics that pre-date myself. It can definitely make a slow org work even slower.

The reframe of the majority of "politicking" to relationship-building has helped me immensely, too. +1 on building up self-awareness as well, to keep our intentions for all the relationships that are a part of our personal and professional selves in check.

Thanks for sharing openly on this topic - it's integral to collaboration-heavy jobs and careers!
