6 ways to get ahead in the office or get out

Some people thrive under leadership while others chafe to be in charge. Whether you dream of helming your own business empire or seeing the view from the top of the corporate ladder, there are skill sets you'll need to take you there. Here are six ways to give your career a big shove -- to the top of the heap or out the door.

Boosting your performance at work
Moving up the ladder
  If you're tired of getting treated like a young whippersnapper at work, learn to get their attention -- professionally and with style.
Play the office politics game
  Office politics isn't a bad thing -- if you know how to play the game. Learn the unwritten rules, and be a winner.
Manage up!
  Climb the corporate ladder with your self-respect intact.
Leaving the cubicle for your own company
  The worst day as your own boss beats the best day in a cubicle, but no one would ever say that it's easy.
To make your startup a success -- keep your day job
  It's tough to get a new business going, so it often pays to keep your day job while launching your entrepreneurial venture.
So you want to be your own boss?
  Think you've got what it takes to be the next big thing? There are people who can help you on your way.
Writing a resignation letter
  Regardless of why you're leaving your job, you need to make your exit gracefully.
