Navigating Office PoliticsIn this episode, herdacious host Lorelei chats with Jamie Lee about how we can successfully maneuver within the world of office politics - and what that really means. Jamie coaches us to see workplace politics as a career development tool instead of something to get angry about or be discouraged by. From harnessing our networking power to the three “should” expectations, Jamie reminds us that office "politics" don't have to be the drama it's made out to be. Ultimately we get to make a choice: whether we treat office politics like it's a bad thing, or we can see the opportunities inherit in every situation.Host: Lorelei GonzalezCo-host: Jamie LeeJamie helps smart women who hate office politics get promoted and better paid without throwing anyone under the bus.
