At work, I often run into the situation where someone takes credit for ideas that I came up with. They're ok with the day to day stuff, but they really struggle with the long range strategic stuff. Currently, there's an open management position for our group that were both going for. It's a real Cold War. Additionally, I find myself being criticized by a couple of people that were friends with our old boss .. I've known that his strategy is to lean on that group in particular and have them talk him up to management, and evidently talk me down... Thoughts?
