1. You've just taken a new job in an unfamiliar organization and are anxious to make a good impression and rise quickly. The best way to do this is to:
  • a) Work hard to develop your technical skills while also becoming a player by plunging into power struggles going on around you, taking care to side with the most influential person or group.

  • c) Keep your head down, work extraordinarily hard, and ignore office intrigue and infighting as a waste of your time and energy.
