Office politics heating up

Published on Saturday, 28 Sep 2013

 

A shuffling of accounts has led to our marketing team needing to compete with another marketing division for resources. The head of the other team is well known for playing politics. It's her favourite pastime and she has managed to get rid of some other competing divisions in the past. In fact, rumour is that she was the one that instigated the recent shuffling of accounts and it seems she wants to takeover our division to expand her empire. How can we jockey to remain afloat without her sabotaging us? She is also very close to the big bosses. Do we need to play hardball too?
