كيف تتعامل مع غيرك في مكان عملك؟

women and men

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!


A new study by the University of Essex in the UK says that women who adopt a more masculine approach to their work earn 4% more than women who are seen to be nice.

This means women who are more forceful or pushy are able to achieve higher salaries than those women who are too nice to their colleagues at work.

When the BBC asked people in a UK city what they thought, opinion was divided.

One lady said that if she was nice at work, people would take advantage of her.

Another lady said that it was not in her nature to be awful to get ahead or get more money.

Deb Leary from the British Association of Women Entrepreneurs disagreed with the university's report.

She told the BBC that women don't need to be like men to succeed; instead they should adopt the right tone of voice when speaking to their colleagues and managers.

Listening to other people's viewpoints is important too and Liz Mckenzie, a management and communications trainer agrees with Deb.

Liz told the BBC that she thinks women should have a firm voice and maintain eye contact when working with others.

i think ther's no an specifice way to colopreate some time have to be polite and some time you have to turne your self into another way to impse your self and of the above is depende on the persson that you are dealing with

I believe that we should have the most of skills that would help to deal with or colleagues.

Ahmed Osman Omer, Khartoum, Sudan

I think dealing with others in work depends mainly on the charater of the person you are dealing with i.e some needs you to smile and be nice, others inforced you to be awaful

well , at work i always aviod getting into arguments , i help my Colleagues when ever they need my help , i don't talk much with them specially about things doesn't relate to work , and i don't say hi to those i don't know , in general i am very quiet employee.

Randa, Kuwait

At this time, the common thought about the nice person is that he is weak or without character, I believe to be a nice person with your colleagues at work or with others every where is much harder to be tough or awful. Any body could be shameless or violent when he gets offend by others but not any one could be nice or merciful at that situation.
At the end people will keep remembering the person only and I believe God will rewards you in someway for your kindness with others.

Ahmad Ghawanmeh, Amman, Jordan

I think that if the woman do her best in her work and have a respectiful, good character, then she do not need to adopt a masculine approach to be successful at work. It will be over.

Eman Sayed, Demyat, Egypt

I disagred that a women get ahead or achieve higher salary because it was masculine approache,some time they need to be feminin approaches,taht depend on the job and her character.

Adnan Hassan, Amman

In my point of view, colleagues should not have gender distinction. In addition, they have to maintain the relationship between them in work level and keep respect, trust and space for negotiations. Also, working as a team is very productive and is a result of good relationship between colleagues.

Othman, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

I think there is not specific approach to be followed for getting high salaries or high positions or good reputation among the people. I know a group of women who have good salary and another the same group of women do not have high salaries.

Amin Adel, Kabul, Afghanistan

I'd adopt more skills and qualifications to become more successful at work, but also I believe that women have to learn how to protect and defense themself at work or any other location.

Madeleine, Alexandria, Egypt

it is good to be nice but not too nice ; nice with people who treat you nicely & deserve a smile from you. other people who are rough has to be treated awfully. so it depend on who you are dealing with.

Mohammed Adel, Dammanhour, Egypt
