Successful Companies Are “Nice”

Successful Companies Are “Nice” | PLAEATECH | Scoop.it

“There’s no way to institutionalize or “corporatize” niceness…. It has to come from the top, and from there it will filter down…"

 

We live in a world where information travels quickly and powerfully. Nothing happens—good or bad—without the world knowing it.

 

In his book Nice Companies Finish First: Why Cutthroat Management is over—and Collaboration Is In, author Peter Shankman shows how famously nice executives, entrepreneurs, and companies are setting the standard for success in this new world. He goes in-depth with nine hallmarks of effective leadership.

Rescooping (thanks John Michel).  I would piggyback that these "nice companies" finish first in the long run.  Sure, a more cutthroat organization may be able to perform in the short term, but how long will that "success" last before the bubble bursts?  Happy leaders make for happy employees, which make for happy customers and success.

Very few of these and can be tracked via reputations on Glassdoor .com

Do you think this is true? Are we becoming collaborative? I've worked and led in the Credit Union sector and I've always found collaboration better then cutthroat.
