Do you need to be mean?

I once heard a team being called the “mean team” by their boss in jest. But seriously, I do think they are mean. They have a reputation for being mean.

Some people love labels like these. It’s cool, to them. It says “I am an alpha whatever” and being “alpha” must be good right? Right?

Being mean can also used to camouflage weaknesses because people who are being attacked cannot focus on you. You are on the offensive. Your weaknesses is hidden. 

I think nastiness begets nastiness. It’s easy to be primal in our reaction. To respond with civility? Well, that takes wisdom, character and maturity.

Far more difficult to be civil than primal. But by far a better choice.

Have you tried being nice?
