[What do you think] Is it more rewarding to be liked by others than to be powerful?

It may seem important to you that people are expected to keen on you in the workplace, or when it comes to teamwork. After all it can helps in getting things done, which is a good thing and considerably does wonder for one's career.

However, differentiating yourself as an individual from the decisions you need to make within your organization also plays a vital role in raising your voice, as a self-determinant.

Which one do you tend to lean towards? 

I am of great appreciation to hear from your opinions.

This is a good & tricky question at the same time! :))) Thank you for sharing!

I used the word "tricky" since at the workplace, it won't hurt if you are both liked and powerful. Yet when it comes to comparing which attribute (being liked VS being powerful) is more rewarding, I think most ppl 'd struggle to find the answer. 

For me, I find neither being liked nor being powerful to be rewarding. They're both outward attributes (that is, what you can gain/receive from the world out of yourself). I tend to rely more on inward ones, like how I feel about myself, or self-confidence for short.

So for me, it's most rewarding, and important, to be self-confident, to have faith in who you are & what you do.

At the workplace, ofc it's all about getting things done, but we humans are not rational beings. We're very irrational and tend to act upon emotions & personal preferences. Cases where individuals, though not very talented, but still get promoted for being liked by their supervisors are not few. :D

In my view, I prefer to become one having some power. I think when it comes to work, being liked by others does not mean anything. All stuff done in the workplace is either rational or not. It is not decided by the expression of preference which can stem from several facets such as personality, productivity, and position. Some of them have nothing to do with the efficiency of work. Moreover, people don't have to worry about being likable.

To be powerful means that a person has a certain qualification. He can speak out loud his ideas and he is reliable. 

In my opinion, being liked isn't change anything about your life. It only can make you happy in a very short moment. It can't help you better in your life and keep you making people pleasant.
