Summary With examples of individuals using political skill to succeed in the corporate world, government, education and sports, the authors explore what political skill is (and isn't), why and how it works and how it can be measured and developed. They define four key dimensions of political skill: social astuteness, interpersonal influence, networking ability and apparent sincerity. Their 18-item Political Skill Inventory measures strength in these areas.
