To be Liked or not to be Liked? That is the Question!
by Tricia Baker, M.P.A., CPPA

Someone once told me that if you want to be a manager, donít plan on being liked. As a new manager, I was a little upset at this statement, because I have a lot of friends and many more acquaintances, and I like to be around lots of different types of people. I find them interesting and fascinating. And I am not ashamed to say, I want to be liked. By all of them Ė even those who work for me. While as a leader and manager it is sometimes difficult to be friends with everyone, surely I can still be liked?
