The slimy world of office politics I start my day hearing someone crib about how his female boss and the superboss (boss’ boss) were discussing the colour of saris and shapes of earrings, and how he had to bear this unnecessary chatter. Someone responds: “A necessity if you want to grow within the organisation”, and I can’t help thinking about how office politics is an undesirable necessity. Politics is a sum total of human behaviour when they interact with each other, how they react and counter-react to each other. So, when there are a number of human beings dealing with each other, a political situation, or rather a series of political situations is inevitable. However, at the same time, politics has become to mean “dirty politics”, and it is to this effect that it is undesirable.
The boss orders a pizza, and your colleague collects it and delivers it to your boss, despite the fact that he was not required to do the same (a couple of peons were dozing off). Sounds familiar? Yes. You’re in the middle of a heated discussion with your boss, and your view is on the opposite pole of what your boss is saying. Suddenly, a colleague jumps in, supporting your boss, and the fat fool of your boss welcomes this support, sending your argument to tatters. Sounds familiar? OK, you are hereby certified as a victim of dirty office politics, inflicted on you by your colleague. Is it correct? What can you do about it? What are the options available to you?
As I mentioned at the very beginning, politics by itself is inevitable, it is the dirty politics that should be abhorred, and is not correct. I have seen good people leaving companies, having been unable to bear this burden of constant pain, and a regular stream of insults being thrown at them, while their “bootlicker” colleagues continue to rise above the corporate ladder. Figure this happening at all levels, and the situation shall not be very different from what we see around us – a flock of talented people leaving companies, switching from one job to another, getting increasingly frustrated initially by companies, then the whole corporate concept, and by their own lives, slowly becoming what they abhorred once, while at the same time, incompetent people continue to rise due to their skills of being politically correct, nodding their heads to whatever comes their way. Is this correct? Ask a I-swear-by-(dirty)-office-politics guy and he will tell you there’s nothing wrong about this – “I am paid by my boss”, “He is like this only”, “He does the same”, yadda, yadda, yadda. Yes, It has helped him rise, but just because it helps him and because everyone else around him does the same, doesn’t make him correct, or his politics.
Great, but you’re suffering in the office, your work life is affecting your personal and family life – in short, it satisfies you that you’re correct but you’re not going anywhere, your life is stagnant in doldrums. So, what can you do? Watch a game of wrestling, apply that high-impact DDT or a sick tombstone. OK, I was kidding. This is not a solution. So, what can you do? Leave your company? You did that 6 months back, because of the same reason, and nobody knows if the situation may turn out to be the same in the new place also.
What are the options available? A look at the various websites and the counsellor’s words will tell you that you should let your work speak for you, keep the colleague out of your work and your life, and ignore him to death. A little bit of politics is necessary and you need to up yourself but not at the expense of lowering anybody else, most importantly yourself – see, you haven’t sold yourself to anyone. These are really sound advice, I tell you, all tried-and-tested-and-applied effectively, across time and places, or so it seems. However, these are good and a sound measure to keep your career in check, but only if your boss is apolitical or, your colleague is not out and out dirty.
