WARNING: OFFICE POLITICS AHEAD!!!

Politics of some Project Managers in IT Companies

Are you ready?
Are you ready?

If you ask these project managers, they will refuse to believe but the fact is that most of their time is spent playing a game of office politics. These are often guys who are holding an excess amount of power within the office and who will blame others for their mistakes or will try to demoralize the efforts and abilities of others to make them feel better about themselves.

These guys are expert at exploiting other person’s honesty against them. The only way they could take advantage of you in the first place is because of your honest attitude. So, here in fact your troubles come not from your weakness, but from your good qualities.

These guys always work in group and go strictly by the process, writing the process if necessary. They silently lay the trap long in advance, using right measures to do it. You did not notice it coming, but it was long in coming.

There are several ways we can surpass these actions
Firstly, don’t be afraid of them, they are often more friendly to people who aren’t scared by them and more eager to listen to alternative ideas. If somebody tries to demoralize you in a meeting, do not get drawn into a heated argument. Simply be bold and confident, but not aggressive, when making your points and if their behavior continues, peacefully take your leave and if you are asked why you did that later, just say that you found that the meeting was becoming more negative.

Your only other option is to just give up and I am not a quitter, how about you?

Karol Bagh, Connaught Place & Greater Kailash – I

Cruel Saturday
The attacks on Saturday evening were the latest in a series of bombings in national capital leaving at least twenty people killed and over 90 injured in six serial blasts in a span of 40-50 minutes targeting busy shopping centres and markets.

Responsible
Indian Mujahideen has claimed responsibility for the blasts saying “We are terrorising you for your sins”.

Blasts Area and Devices
Two bombs exploded in Connaught Place, the heart of the city, major office and shopping centre. They were also detonated in Karol Bagh and Greater Kailash. One explosive device was defused near the high-security India Gate area. Preliminary examination of the blast site said that low intensity ammonium nitrate tied to integrated circuit had been used in almost all the serial blasts. Timer devices were used in all the blasts.

Local Authorities
Two persons have been arrested by the police for questioning. The police says that a 12 year old boy may be able to provide clues. Delhi city authorities suspended the metro transport system and blocked mobile telephone signals in the surrounding area of the blasts.

Government’s Appeal
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil has condemned the blasts and appealed that people should maintain calm and social harmony and understanding.

Let’s Work Together
We will work hard and we will win the war on terrorism..
Let’s work together for a terror free tomorrow…
