Be nice. But not too nice.

23 Sep 2008

An article I picked up about "being too nice" from Tim Berglund that was published on hits a very sensitive spot. It indicates that being too nice, when it means compromising your position and ideas, is a career risk. When you step back and think about it, that makes perfect sense. I have taken a cautious few steps towards the solidarity-of-position, even when it poses small endangerments of conflict. I am already starting to see some of the benefits. But this is truly a fine line to walk. Don't take it too far.
