The Power of Nice: How to Conquer the Business World with Kindness by Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval
In this book, Thaler and Koval give example after example of how simply being nice can provide numerous benefits. While most of the examples were based around the business world, it is very applicable in other settings. The authors show time and time again how simply showing consideration and kindness to others will provide rewards in ways that one never expects-from landing business accounts to getting that perfect job!
Each chapter ends with exercises to increase your "niceness" entitled "Nice Cubes."
What I Thought:While this book was for a class project, I enjoyed it very much! I think the principles were great and applicable for everyone, no matter the career track. Couldn't the world use a little more nice? I sure think so!
