To be or Not to be Nice at Work?

A person’s personality defines whether the person at work is nice or not. Many times, it’s a person’s character, and at times it’s forced or influenced by a change overdue to work environment and pressure.

But I feel one should stay balanced at work and take things smartly. Whether it’s a workplace, pressure will always remain to achieve targets for your successor in life! So how to deal with them is important. Being friendly and generous genuinely always payback. But one should not be so lovely that people walk over you.

You can save yourself from getting damaged mentally by stating the correct and solid boundaries. With the experience, we can mention today that being nice is not bad. It is not harmful to be nice if you have the proper knowledge and experience about when to say ‘Yes’ and ‘NO’. If you’re a kind person, express it. It’s good to be sunshine as many might have a cloudy day but won’t describe it. Just be careful with the people who approach you only when needed and disrespect you. Being nice is an art. Don’t let someone steal it from you. Protect your ideas at your workplace as we live in a competitive world. So, it’s obvious to have competition all around. If someone assumes you are weak – prove them wrong. Create and maintain balance, to be genuinely kind but professional. Be open to accepting compliments or critics with grace, share your opinions with respect, be expressive with your ideas, learn to share constructive critics but communicate it well, and don’t be a nerd.

Develop yourself in both ways – socially and professionally in nature at the work environment. Let your company get benefit more through its relaxed and comfortable employees. When an employee is not expressive at work, somehow, they stop themselves from giving their thorough input. Don’t be too friendly with all your workmates, as then they can take you for granted.

A nice work environment could possibly respect other people’s religion, race and culture. Being diplomatic, in my opinion, is not ‘nice’. You cannot spy on your workers by being nice. One should not violate the privacy of an individual. Be ethical with your work. Cheating in any way won’t take you long to give success. You might achieve it for a period, but ultimately, the truth and facts would be out someday, and you would be ruined. This applies to both our professional as well as personal life.

Stay precise with your priorities, i.e., work for the company and not please your colleagues. Then, prepare a plan on how you can achieve it. ‘Focus on the bigger picture in life.

Stay strong: This difficult phase will help you grow. Once you have dealt with this situation successfully, you will feel stronger and more confident. Don’t let the office environment make you weak. Be a flexible listener. Be ready to give ears to others’ opinions, then share your peace of mind by staying rational. Avoid using mobile, maintain eye contact. Others should not feel ignored by you. Discourage gossip and gossipers. They just waste time for little entertainment. ‘AVOID’ is the remedy for them.

It’s up to us to stay nice at the workplace by visiting positive and maintaining our dignity.
