About the Story:

Beyond Office Politics follows senior manager Don E. as he is coached through common office politics situations, including power plays, miscommunication, motivation issues, teamwork problems, undervaluing of subordinates, and competition for promotion. He learns that his blind spots regarding his personal brand image in business--as well as his blind spots about the realities of the game of business--have essentially sidelined his career. He finds out that having skills is not enough, and that moving his career forward requires that he become people savvy. With guidance from his coach, Don learns about loyalty, people games and how to win. He learns to recognize and utilize his strengths, and how to build teams that produce results. Most of all, Don learns to expand his point of view about power, affiliation and achievement, leading him to find value and influence in unexpected places.
