Understanding the Politics of Promotion
New nonfiction offers readers an insightful toolkit for career advancement in the
FRESNO, Calif. – Is discussing promotion politics taboo? Lorenzo G. Flores, Ph.D.,
author of the breakthrough new nonfiction book Executive Career Advancement: How
to Understand the Politics of Promotion the X Factor (published by AuthorHouse),
thinks so. ―Career Advancement Politics is the elephant in the room no one wants
to talk about. Unlike popular topics like leadership, teamwork, customer services,
and self esteem – career advancement politics is seen as controversial. With each
attempt to deny, minimize or cover up promotion politics it becomes obvious that
career advancement politics are here to stay – so why not find constructive ways
to deal with it?
Breaking down conventional wisdom and myth, Executive Career Advancement brings readers
back to reality and gives them the framework by which to analyze and discuss career
advancement like any other matter in organizational business. Flores utilizes what
he calls “career-shaping questions” to challenge readers to reevaluate the steps
to success and how they can make the best of the knowledge and skills that they already
possess. Ideal for both employees and executives, Executive Career Advancement is
a breakthrough guide to promotion politics, and the spoken and unspoken realities
of career advancement.

This book refines his ideas and is the only book that I know of that really addresses
the key issues in career advancement for people of all ethnicities. It is a delightful
work, full of thought provoking quotes and provides keen insights into the politics
of promotion. In the interface we find that the dynamics of career advancement are
critical to the leadership and management processes. They go to the heart of morale,
productivity, and control of the work environment.
