All things being equal, a friendly, likable boss is always more persuasive than one who isn’t.
Having a good natured approach to people and problems will make your job easier. However, so often we forget to use it.
One reason is that under the pressure of business, we sometimes think about our own feelings and problems and forget about others.
Another reason is that some of us feel we have to be gruff in order to appear firm and decisive, so that things get done. That isn’t so.
You can be just as firm and decisive by being friendly as you can by being unfriendly. Once people have learned that you mean what you say and that you follow through, then they will follow your directives.
Most successful owners (bosses) are approachable and easy to talk to and rarely become overexcited or fly off the handle. They also avoid letting a few problems poison their overall outlook. They always try to take a friendly, pleasant approach. Finally, they will show consideration for the feelings of the people who work for them.
When it comes to working with people, there are few things that can’t be accomplished with a pleasant and friendly approach.
