Intracompany politics can undermine a work community and kill it in the long run. Here are three ways for CEOs to prevent politics: 1. Don’t hire people who are inherently political. Avoid those who prefer daily work drama. 2. “Expose to daylight” any somewhat political comments. People must be transparent with everyone and not avoid telling others information for political reasons. 3. Hire those with “passionate beliefs loosely held”. These people can fiercely defend their position but also be hyper critical and not become entrenched.
