Respected GTD and self-improvement blog has an excellent post up outlining the best strategies for surviving office politics, i.e., avoiding office politics altogether. It points out that office politics is mostly about us… our selfish egos and interests. Therefore, office politics can make us lose sight of that fact that, very often, a successful workplace is about a team working together to find common success. Money quote:

“Office politics often tends to focus on the person rather than the idea, so try and detach one from the other in evaluating the competing approaches. (…) A 90% perfect solution done in unison can often be better then the 100% perfect solution which was only achieved at the cost of civil war.”
