Here’s a crazy fact 〰️ you can be both NICE and SUCCESSFUL in business.
As a female, sometimes we can feel the pressure of having to be ‘tough’ and get told ‘we’re too nice’ and ‘people pleasers’.
There’s definitely a fine balance between being nice and not standing your ground yet in my experience I’ve found being nice actually helps build trust, loyalty, and connection. Knowing how to ask the right questions, show up with confidence, negotiate, and challenge while balancing being nice is a power skill to master.
Traits like empathy, compassion, and kindness I believe are more important than ever as soft skills.
The thing is business is humans interacting with humans. At the end of the day every human wants to be treated with respect and dignity so why not be nice if that’s who you are.
