The Likeability Factor

While being liked at work is not the only way to become successful, your likeability can directly impact your chances for promotions and advancement in your career. Likeability is more than just being friendly. In fact, it is comprised into 5 different components:

1. Listening. People will not be interested in helping you if they do not feel like they are being heard. Therefore, take the time to listen to what others have to say. Your coworkers will feel appreciated and, in turn, value your opinions.

2. Respect. Being able to take other people’s concerns into consideration is essential to one’s likability. Avoid petty gossip and other acts that would make people think poorly of you.

3. Humility. Confidence is acceptable but avoid being arrogant. Let your accomplishments speak for themselves. People will be able to recognize your capabilities on their own without you reminding them.

4. Generosity. Make an effort to help your coworkers by assisting with projects or giving advice. Being generous will add to your likeability because people will admire you for your kindness. A list of acts of kindness can be found at http://www.randomactsof

5. Positivity. Everyone hates being around a coworker who is rude or constantly complains. When people are having a hard day, it can be made much worse by having to deal with a negative coworker. Keeping a positive attitude at the workplace will make people enjoy being around you and improve the overall atmosphere at the office.

    Лoкoны, волны и кудряшки. Нo если пpeпapaт определяет вpeмя, которое вы проходите c кyдpями и cocтoяниe волос пocлe завивки, то тип лoкoнa oпpeдeляeтcя тем, кaк накрутить вoлocы.
