Brown Nosing Not a Bad Thing in the Working World

December 14, 2010

This article explains how to successfully brown nose a boss.  I find this article to be very interesting because the author explains that brown nosing is often looked at as a negative thing to do, yet it really should not be.  The author gives seven tips on how to successfully brown nose without making it blatantly obvious.  One way that I did not think was a form of flattery that the author suggests as a way to successfully disguise the brown nosing is to point out things that you believe you have in common with the person.  I believe that this is a good way of impressing people, as showing a common interest shows the person that you enjoy what they enjoy and that you approve of them as a person.  Brown nosing often gets a bad reputation in society, and people who do it are sometimes given a hard time, but it is something that can really help people to improve their situation in the working world.

    Brown nosing has always left a bad taste in my mouth. There is a clear and distinct difference between being respectful and being a suck-up. Oddly enough, every brown noser I have seen in a workplace has eventually either quit or asked to leave from their employers. Coincidence?
