Supervising Friends – And Maintaining Peak Performance And how It’s Done

The Challenges Are:

1.     Acknowledge the discomfort. Be upfront with former friends about your own possible concerns about being friend and a supervisor at the same time.

2.     Admit the uncertainty, Especially regarding the future, be prepared to be honest about not knowing if the friendship can continue as is.

3.     Try to get a pledge of commitment to work towards a positive goal. You’re obliged to get the job done first.

4.      Boss Pet Problem. Be on the lookout for others whose view of the relationship is based solely on the friendship.

5.     Sitting Duck Fears. Be alert to taking out your frustrations out on friends. They often know your weaknesses, and you know theirs.
