"Can I Be Friends With My Direct Reports?"

"Can I Be Friends With My Direct Reports?" This is a question I often get asked when I do management trainings in organizations. 

I'd love to say YES but my answer is NO on this one and I'll explain why in this episode.

- YOU'LL WALK AWAY KNOWING -

  • The reason why I encourage you to set clear boundaries
  • The issue with "perceived" favoritism and why that's important
  • How friendships with direct reports could create conflicts of interest
  • And how to address this topic proactively with the direct reports you have friendships with at work
