Show Notes

Most people assume that workplace friendships lead to positive organizational and personal outcomes. Friends can drive connection and culture, plus improve morale and output. 

What we don't often talk about is when the workplace feels like a high school drama and what to do about it. In this episode, I discuss:

  • Why gossip feels juicy and how not to engage 
  • The social exchange theory
  • The harrowing downfall of workplace betrayal
  • 10 signs they are not your friend

Show notes: 

The New York Times article: The magic of your first work friends
