Hello Seniors,

I am a human resource professional working in an itservices organisation for the last three years. Lately, i've become a victim of office politics and would like to check if there is way to turn things around. I am really looking for mentoring/support/advice, from the senior folks in our forum, which can help me change the perception that is build , about me , in the organisation. Our company had headcount of 200 , when i joined, and since reached a headcount of 400 and and is still counting. I did extensive work of hiring ,taking up adhoc responsibilities, and did everything diligently and added value to the organisation ,by doing things ,which inspired not only my colleagues but also impressed my manager. There was a moment when the vice president of the company,publicly, awarded a pat on the back to me, but things changed ,post that, and my own manager started behaving in a weird way. For instance, if one does a bad job, it is inevitable for the boss/ manager to act grumpy , but its hard for me to comprehend the reason , for passing the heat, when one is at the top of the game. Can his behavior be manifested as being insecure ?

Few months ago, they hired somebody above me who apparently wants me to do basic activities rather than the ones which i perform now, Obviously, he will do the things that is in his interest and not mine or the organisation. Although i do the entire work, the appreciation goes to him. Also, some of my friends in the organisation advised that he floated rumors of me being a junior guy. Does this happen often in corporate companies ? As a human resource professional i explain people our office culture which is suppose to be open and transparent , but i am in dilemma whether it actually is ?

Obviously, i cannot talk to anyone in my office about this , hence, thought of seeking help here. Please help!!!

Dear RT,
This is really very bad. We live in a world in which not every one is perfect. You may face hindrance due to natural behaviors of others. But one thing is sure. If you tolerate and absorb the pressure, then you will be succeed.
here is the few tips.
1. Check why your senior behave in such a way?
2. Openaly express the +ve of your senior publicly so that you win his trust.
3. Avoid his negative points becoz it only demoralize you.
4. Check in which area you help them?
5. Build open relation and good will in your seion heart.
6. Always and always respect him becoz he may be senior in experience or skill other than the post he hold.
When you do all that
1. You will win his trust and now gradually decreases hurdle created by him
2. You both will participate in the growth of self + organization.
MY advice to you
1. Wait
2. Absorb pressure.
3. Give all your responses in good way.

Dear Friends,
The post made by Mr. Ziad Hussian is correct, Really this type of situation arises in almost every company sometime but Only the positive attitude towards the problem can overcome this kind of issues.
I too faced such type of issues sometime, and it really helped.
A time will come whome you are thinking as hurdle he will be your best friend and you both will work together to achieve self and or organizational goal.
