In a corporate setting, you may hear saying like, “He is a nice guy”, “That is nice”, “This is nicely done”…
What is it exactly nice referring here? There is a problem with being nice.
Being nice is a default mode. It is not the same as being kind and sweet and good.
Being nice is hiding – hiding your true comment, your true self, your true intention in a corporate setting.
The opposite of being nice is being mean. We are not talking being mean here. We are talking that you need to be who you are with your character.
We like you even though you may be stubborn, we like you even though you may be very direct, we like you even though you may be aggressive… you see the pattern here: we like you as a person being who you are.
A company’s development and suitability need all kinds of people, from various disciplines, different backgrounds… the diversity and character make a difference.
Being nice is not a mode where any company or person wants to hang on.
Being yourself, with your unique character, live truly.
