Why Professionals should have a pleasing personality?


A professional sometimes has to meet a lot of people as he or she needs to be pleasant and have a friendly disposition. Some people are into professions which deal with the public. Here, the concerned professional needs to be adept in handling people in a cheerful manner. He or she has to make the other person feel comfortable and at ease. Naturally, a pleasing personality is very essential.

Reasons for Pleasing Personality

  • One has to win over the person one is dealing with. A sales person, for example, has to sell his or her product. By being pleasant and cordial he or she is able to build a good rapport. He or she is in a better position to strike a deal. After all, the client is impressed by the behavior of the sales person and feels he or she can trust him or her.
  • Charm leaves a lasting impression on the other person. People are always willing to receive a charming person. Doors open quickly for such a person.
  • A pleasant disposition means better interactions at work place. A grouchy person is never liked by his or her associates.
  • A genuine smile can do wonders. A sunny look draws many people towards you. It brightens up the day and energizes you to work well.
  • People look up to a charming personality as they feel they are confident and sure of themselves.

How to develop pleasing personality?

  • One must change one’s bad habits. Self-appraisal is a must. One must be well aware of one’s negative aspects of one’s personality and try to change them into positive forces.
  • One must be considerate towards others. Concern for others feelings is very essential.
  • Allow the other person to speak. Be a good listener.
  • Do not sound pompous and over confident. It can put off a person.
  • Be enthusiastic.
  • Treat others the same manner you would like to be treated.
  • Be positive in your outlook.
  • Smile a lot.
  • Avoid being rude or discourteous.
  • Try to like a person for what he or she is. Do not expect too much of the other person.

In order to be successful in one’s career, one has to maintain a charming outlook and be pleasant towards other people.

    Dear Mr Shukla,
    I read with interest your article on “why professionals should have a pleasing personality ?”. I have one comment :–
    In the first point of “how to devlop..” section, you wrote “one must be well aware of ome’s negative aspects..”. That is the CATCH !!. Unfortunately, most people ARE NOT AWARE of their negative aspects. In fact, one of the ways to become aware of these is to collect feedback from others (through techniques like “360 degree feedback”).
    Would it be possible for you to add in your website some write-ups on such techniques of obtaining feedback ? I am sure that would be helpful to many who are interested to improve themselves.
    Thanks and regards.
