Your OWN Show Reality Series

Oprah Winfrey Network: Nice Enough to Work?

I watched the Oprah Winfrey Network for the first time yesterday and saw an episode of a reality series, Your OWN Show, in which the winner gets his or her own show on the network. Now, I knew the network is all about positivity, but reality TV generally brings out the worst in people. However, there was none of that on Your Own Show. I saw healthy competition in place of vicious rivalry, and acknowledgments of defeat instead of bitter revenge. And you know the most controversial characters that people love to hate on these types of shows? Well, once Leigh Koechner showed some signs of being an unpleasant team player on OWN, she ended up being the contestant who was booted off first. This compares to other reality shows in which unpopular characters stay on because they give the show good ratings.

I had mentioned earlier that being nice is one of the keys of getting ahead in your career, and perhaps it's a good model for companies to follow as well. What do you think — does the "nice" model work?
