Our guidance on what to do when you snub or undersupport an ally.

We've said many times that what you call politics, those above you call collaboration.  Politics is just a pejorative word for something that happens all the time in relationships.  A give and take of favors is perfectly normal.  Your friend gives you a ride, you pick up chips on the way over to watching the game.  She buys lunch, you cover the gift for a mutual friend.

For some reason, this normal human behavior becomes sleazy in the workplace.  As a consequence, you might not support an ally as fully as they thought you would during a meeting or in a project.  What do you do then?
