>>Re: The Flirt vs. Bitch debate
There is often an impression that you have to be mean or manipulative to
get things done. I just don't buy it. A person can be very effective and
very nice about it.<<<
This is an interesting topic, because I had a class in politics and novels
last semester and one of the general conclusions the class made about what
the authors of the political novels were trying to say was that nice people
are ineffective in government and only those who aren't afraid to do
whatever is necessary actually get the job done. All the likable characters
were politically impotent and all the "villains" were corrupt and
successful. I wonder how much political structure mirrors the workplace
(insert jokes about bureaucratic bs here!). I wonder if any H.R.
specialists have studied this.
