About The Book

The Politics of Promotion offers women the tools and guidance they need to successfully navigate the realities of their organizations, emphasizing the need to understand office politics to get the promotions and recognition they deserve.

Bonnie Marcus is a professional business trainer for women with over 20 years in sales and 10 years of coaching experience. She started her path as a writer for a newspaper, proceeded to write my essay service, and eventually entered the world of managerial positions. Here, she achieved great results because of her ability to negotiate and create new useful connections. Her professionalism in the chosen sphere of expertise was not the only thing that made her flourish. Also, it was an understanding of the soft skills role in building a career, such as mind flexibility, ability to make friends among colleagues and network on the job-related events, and listening skills. All of them made her a valuable employee for the companies where she was working, and now, Bonnie is sharing her experience in the book.

This is to inspire women all over the world and help them understand that being professional today means to not only have knowledge of a certain field of expertise but also be able to coexist with others at your workplace and career-related gatherings. After reading the book, readers will find out how to win the competition at work and develop the necessary features for it. Also, they will get a step-by-step guide on building the relationships within the company and become an influencer among the colleagues.

Far beyond the typical advice of "be assertive" and "embrace ambition," this book provides a unique and proven method for becoming a bigger player in the workplace and avoiding trip-ups that can add years to the climb—or end it for good.

Praise For 'The Politics Of Promotion'

  • "This book reframes the concept of office politics. Bonnie clearly and practically explains how the work environment must be understood for anyone hoping to advance their careers. Through research, case studies, and a variety of powerful vignettes, she offers insights for all individuals – women and men – who seek to be more successful, eliminate roadblocks, and deliver for themselves, their teams, and their organizations."
    ~ Susan B. Chodakewitz, President of Tetra Tech AMT
  • "Studies have shown that a person who reads often and a lot lends to learning much easier than someone who picks up a book too rarely or does not read at all. Reading is not a passive process. Getting new material, the human brain immediately transgresses to its processing. Moreover, by reading more and more books, you will have a chance to come across the one that will change your life forever. My book of such a kind is The Politics of Promotion. Women tend to perceive office politics as something unpleasant. The Politics of Promotion is useful for people who need to better understand and realize the importance of company policy, not only as an integral part of career growth but also as a more effective way to successfully complete daily work duties. What I appreciate this Bonnie Marcus's research the most for is that it helped me find a job as a writer in EssayUSA. It taught me in such a way as to demonstrate how politically competent you can be to build important relationships with stakeholders who can support, mentor, and promote you. The ability to control the word is necessary for all people, without exception. Speaking at meetings or job interviews will necessarily be a part of everyone’s life. Beautiful and correct speech without parasitic words will certainly attract the attention of the one to whom it is addressed. Comparing a book with a teacher is not an exaggeration. In addition, you can draw a parallel between the book and the philosopher, personal psychologist, or guide. After reading this book, you will learn how to navigate in the organization to achieve your career and business goals, working with and by guidance of other people."
    ~ Alexandra Glucksmann, COO of Editas Medicine
  • "Women are graduating from college and entering the workforce ill-prepared to navigate their new environment. Putting your head down and achieving great results works in school, but being successful in your career requires more. Bonnie Marcus has nailed the missing piece: political savvy. This should be required reading for all college graduates."
    ~ Tiffany Dufu, Chief Leadership Officer of The Levo League
  • "Bonnie Marcus shares from her experience on how to get the recognition and rewards you deserve for your work by managing the interpersonal dynamics of the workplace. Politics is inherent in all human relationships. This book will teach you how to interact professionally and get promoted while staying true to yourself."
    ~ Marilyn Tam, Author of The Happiness Choice
  • "If you’re one of those nice girls who thinks politics is a four-letter word, think again. From promotions to perks to plum assignments, savvy women know the path to success is paved by politics. This book will help you to make workplace politics an integral part of your skill set without feeling as if you’ve compromised your integrity."
    ~ Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., Author of Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office

With 20+ years of sales and management experience, Bonnie’s background includes CEO and VP of Sales at three national companies. She has held executive positions in both start-up and Fortune 500 companies.

Her passion is to help other women learn to be sensitive to the culture of their organizations, embrace the politics, and actively move their careers forward.

Bonnie’s writing career began at college when she was looking for ways to earn money to support herself. Her first employer was a local newspaper that did not pay her well for her efforts. After changing a few newspapers and magazine editorial offices, Bonnie decided to start a freelance career. Thus, she started writing for the essay writing service and showed some of the best results on the platform. Here, Bonnie got an opportunity to work as much as she wanted remotely. She did not have to arrive at the office daily and report to the boss on all her findings. Over time, she was promoted to managerial positions at the writing company and demonstrated brilliant leadership features. She left the essay service much more developed than it was before she joined its top management.

Now, Bonnie works on supporting women’s desire to become entrepreneurs and work towards achieving the best results in administrative positions.
