Office politics

  • Blow your own horn without being a blowhard

    In her Nov. 12 Ask Annie column Fortune's Anne Fisher describes how difficult it can be for some people to boast about their accomplishments at work.  How easy (or not) is it to get recognized where you work? Have you managed to take credit for a job well done without coming across as a know-it-all? How did you do it?

    An office where people spend a lot of time undermining each other's reputations is not a healthy place, writes Fortune's Anne Fisher in her November 5 Ask Annie column. Do you think the office grapevine is beneficial, or is gossip a big problem in your workplace? Have co-workers ever made you the subject of unfair rumors? Any ideas on how to keep the rumor mill from running amok?

    Once you've agreed in writing to take a job, getting out of it to accept a better offer can be tricky, writes Fortune's Anne Fisher in her July 31 Ask Annie column.

  • How to beat a backstabber at work

    What should you do if you hear someone on your team is going above your head and criticizing you to your boss? Whatever you do, don't ignore it, advises Fortune's Anne Fisher in her July 2 column. Have you ever found out a subordinate or co-worker was badmouthing you to the boss? Or has an employee tried to badmouth someone else on your team? What did you do about it?
