Is resorting to sycophancy or flattering necessary for success in life?Yes, you read it right. I have deliberately typed the word 'success'.
Success may mean different to different individual, but in general people acquiesce to flatter others who matter and the people in power sccumb too.
They may be playing smart from their point of view, but many do resort to sycophancy or flattering for 'gains'.
Flattering need not always be elaborate in nature.
Often for trivial requirements like leaving work place earlier or reaching late, even a flattering smile works well and an apologistic smile may cover many folloies.
