This article is a reminder that managing organisational politics remains an essential management skill. It highlights several ways in which a manager can tune-into the political and power dynamics of organisations. Aimed primarily at new managers and younger MBA graduates, who may be experiencing these managerial politics at work for the first time, the article provides advice based on the author’s own experiences to enable managers to negotiate some of the leadership pitfalls to enable them to develop into the type of leaders that all organisations need.
