Frineds, give tips to handle the office politics. My close friend is in so much tension. He is newly joined ( he is going to complete 1 year) in the company. Mean to say the old staff thought that she will be promoted to Manager, but the company recruited my friend and appointed as Manager. Now the politics started, noone is cooperating in the company. In the beginning i always adviced him to be quiet and patient and friendly, but no use. One particular state people were more in that company and they are not cooperating and always complains about him to higher officials My friend is fed up. His family life also affected a lot. He hardly smiles, but forced to stick in job for family needs. His wife is nice lady and kids also too sweet. His wife is working, so she tells him to leave the job. But i adviced him to look for another job and then leave this job,,, What you say ILs? How to handle this situation? How to make the other staffs to cooperate? Or is he has to leave the job?
