Traditionally, public affairs—and lobbying—has been shrouded in secrecy.

The Ever-Changing PR Salesperson | PR Whiteboard | ThinkPolitics | Scoop.it

Much has been shared about the way the PR gig has changed over the past few years. While all of what’s being said is accurate and important, noteworthy is the fact that seeking new business has also changed. Listed here are a few of the ways new business generation has changed since I first jumped into the business:

 

 In 2013, prospects find you. This is the first and by far the most significant item on this list. Prospects find agencies or individual PR professionals in a home office somewhere by way of their online presence. That’s an online presence far beyond just a website – although that remains hugely valuable. Prospects are looking for professionals who practice what they preach, and who are active and engaged....

People haven't changed that much, but technology has changed what they do, how they do it, and how to interact with them to have that PR conversation.

WebMarketingStore's comment, September 9, 2013 4:45 PM
PR is much more accessible to the smallest of businesses now. The whole context has changed about who can afford "PR," not to mention what the PR they want entails. I really wonder how far the atrophy of traditional PR agencies will go.

The Importance of Office Politics

The Importance of Office Politics | ThinkPolitics | Scoop.it
Learning to be good at office politics is just as important to the success of the company as it is to the employee.

 

Many promising executives derail sometime during their careers, often because they weren't very good at office politics.

 

Not playing the political game is often seen as a good thing, even a badge of honor. Some managers see it as proof of their integrity. They are going to succeed because of job performance alone.

 

They couldn't be more wrong. Research finds that a person's political skills are key to building a successful career—for the good of both themselves and their company. When talented executives combine a knowledge of what their company needs with an ability to get things done, everyone benefits. Conversely, when a promising career falters because of poor political skills, companies have to spend time and money finding a replacement, and performance suffers in the meantime.

I hate it, personally.

 

But there's no way around it.

 

One just has to hope that the petty doesn't win out over the substantial; the necessary moral boundaries being adequate and appropriate to fostering development, growth and informed innovation.

 

Hate the petty bs.


Think about it.

Creswell Casey's curator insight, September 21, 2015 10:17 AM

Office Politics, is about picking your battles. I've seen many a good worker come unstuck by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, or to the wrong person. Stop. Think and Roll with it!

Aristotle: Logic [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy] | ThinkPolitics | Scoop.it
Aristotle does not believe that all reasoning deals with words. (Moral decision-making is, for Aristotle, a form of reasoning that can occur without words.) Still, words are a good place to begin our study of his logic.

Politics in the workplace can get vicious -- and we're not talking about the governmental kind.

 

Rather, office politics, or how power and influence are managed in your company, will be a part of your career whether you choose to participate in them or not.

 

Some workers say they don't want to get caught up in politics at work, but most experts argue that playing the game is crucial to your career success.

 

By not getting involved, you may find your talents ignored, your success limited and you may feel left out of the loop, says Louellen Essex, co-author of "Manager's Desktop Consultant: Just-in-Time Solutions to the Top People Problems That Keep You Up at Night."

 

Here are three common myths surrounding office politics:

According to U.S. workers, office politics is with us to stay. A study of 400 U.S. workers from staffing firm Robert Half International says that nearly 60 percent of workers believe that involvement in office politics is at least somewhat necessary to get ahead. There is at least some degree of politics at play in virtually every organization, Robert Half International’s Chairman and CEO Max Messmer reports.

 

As reported by Chad Brooks for Business News Daily, here is some advice from Robert Half for using skilled communications to navigate the politics you cannot avoid:
