Thanks — there’s actually a lot of academic research, which I didn’t cite here, on the debate of whether and how “niceness” relates to business success. See here, here, and here just for a range of examples. At a minimum it’s not clear that being nice precludes success, and (in my opinion) the majority of research and experience indicates that being nice increases the chances of business success.
