So what do laws have to do with how likeable you are? What does being likeable have to do with interns?
I recently found another group of laws that make a difference when applied daily and especially in how I view and interact with other people. These are the Laws of Likeability which can make a BIG difference to an intern who wants to stay on full-time after their internship. This doesn't mean kissing up or brown-nosing (as it used to be called). It just means being genuinely helpful, kind, courteous and thoughtful of other people.
Here are the first four of fifteen Laws of Likeability:
- We like people who like us
- We like people who are like us
- We like authentic people
- We like people who make us feel safe
- ...... (go here to see the rest of the list.)
Bob says "When you focus on helping people like themselves, they will find a way to return the favor. They will hire you...."
Need I say more about being likeable?
