A great quote from Penelope Trunk, an out-and-in-your-face blogger talking about work, life, and life at work:
"Often, people who are really likable don’t have to be good at what they do. People just love being around them. And it’s fair, because someone who everyone likes actually does make the team more productive."
I am not sure that it is always true, but it is certainly perceived as true more often than not.
