How to Have Friends at Work When You’re the Boss

Despite the fact that the author never mentions women, leaving one to wonder if women leaders have these problems and if those problems have the same solutions, this is a good article on how to maintain friendships with colleagues at work – especially when you are the boss. I especially like the sentiment that either end of the spectrum is not productive. Maintaining too much distance is not rewarding, but blurring the lines where friendship gets in the way of good management is just as destructive. Great read.
