Liking the people you work with is not mandatory for a successful career. However if you do like them, you have a better chance of success in your work. What do I mean by “like”? I mean having a level of professional compatibility that allows you to thrive in a team. This creates conditions that foster your success. If you like your co-workers as people, then you can add fun and enjoyment to the mix.
This is not a pie-in-the-sky concept. If you do not like the people you work with, your working conditions are less than optimal. You may find yourself irritated, less productive and discouraged. A positive workplace lets you thrive and move forward.
Do you like the people you work with?
