There’s no avoiding office politics, and women who want to move up the career ladder must learn how to play the game if they want to get ahead and stay there. Recent research suggests that one of the biggest differentiators of women who make it to the top is their well-developed political skills.

Women behaving like men is not the answer either, but there are some highly effective techniques that could pave the way for an accelerated climb up that steep ladder.
