Being nice is smart business.

Interesting post by Tony Schwartz on the HBR Blog Network on Leadership.

Reading the four pieces of advice I wonder why not everybody is adopting them, although they are so simple?

1. As the Hippocratic oath prescribes to physicians, “Above all else, do no harm.” [sounds like Google :-)]

2. Practice appreciation by starting with yourself.

3. Make it a priority to notice what others are doing right.

4. Be appreciative.

Well, maybe Rousseau’s idea of man which still underlies most of the en vogue leadership theories doesn’t always apply…
