How to Pick Your Battles at Work - Amy Gallo - Harvard Business Review

How to Pick Your Battles at Work - Amy Gallo - Harvard Business Review
Principles to Remember
Do:
  • Articulate how the challenge fits into your job or make it a formal part of your responsibilities
  • Have a viable solution, or at least a plan of attack, in mind before you raise a problem
  • Be careful about how many battles you take on — you could run out of political capital
Don’t:
  • Take on an issue that isn’t in some way important to the organization
  • Rely on your boss to wage the battle for you — approach her with a thought-out plan
  • Dive in until you’ve first floated the idea by colleagues you trust — both those you know well and those outside of your immediate circle
