Nice Guys (and Gals) Finish First

Here is a great story about a Harvard study that prompted one researcher to conclude, "In general, the thing that is most, sort of, rational and best for your own self-interest is to be nice." The first time I heard about the study was this evening as I was listening to NPR (link to interview).

This study hints at so many misperceptions about how to succeed in business and in life. I encourage you to listen to the interview and consider how you interact with your fellow professionals and clients.
