It’s official (again). Being nice and agreeable doesn’t pay. We’ve been told that ‘agreeable’ people on average earn less promotions and pay-rises than disagreeable people. A year ago I blogged about Martin Kihn’s “I got Rich and Happy by Not Giving a S*** About You’. Seems nothing’s changed….
No, no, no! We are not taking that sitting down. It isn’t ‘niceness’, it’s how good you are at putting your case or fighting for your promotion/pay rise/right to reply etc. So it’s really about being STRONG. Heed that!
