Can You Be a Great Leader and Still Be Nice?


Can you be nice and be an effective leader? That’s the question Myrdin Thompson of MomentumNation asks, and she believes that the answer is “yes.”

Myrdin offers a variety of suggestions to help you remain nice while leading your team and company to positive results in her article, which you can read by following the link below.

Most importantly, Myrdin explains:

“Being nice doesn’t mean being a doormat – being nice means opening the door and inviting someone in. Whether in the workplace or in the world, being nice means treating others how you would like to be treated. And if there isn’t a place for that in your workplace, I suggest finding another place to work.”

I think Myrdin sums it up nicely, wouldn’t you agree?
