Should You Be Less Nicer at Work?
To me? The answer is a resounding “No”.
Because we are working with people .. and for a quite extensive long period of time. Emphaty still rings a very important tune 🙂
However, for every argument there’s a counter argument.
Have a read at this HBR blog which inspires me to write this blog. http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2012/02/are_successful_people_nice.html
The author, Art Markman, presented quite a compelling case why less agreeable person (i.e. less nicer person) actually performs better at work.
Think about it over the weekend..
Have a nice relaxing weekend, folks!
