Dear Fred

I am a great follower of your philosophies and would like to take your advice on the office Politics. A few people take credit of the work done by someone else. People's positions are hurt and they take advantage of this.

Fred's Response

A very successful businessman had a sign on his wall. It said I can get almost anything done as long as I don’t care who gets the credit. It is good to always stay centered on results rather then credit. It is very irritating to see someone steal credit, particularly when you feel you deserve it. In any group there will be those who will claim authorship but don’t deserve it. One of the things I was most proud of I heard another taking credit for it. I didn’t argue with him because in my heart I knew the accomplishment was mine.
