Yes, yes. I should not be friends with my staff.
What is the reason for this? What is the wisdom?
Some: require first-hand distance, yes.
Some: deserve closeness.
All: will benefit from closeness.
How shall I decide?
It depends on the individual’s ability to separate work from life; hierarchy from love; when and where. Can the person see me for me, while maintaining professionalism at work?
Each person needs to know, I care about their lives, health and prosperity. I am willing and would be honoured to give, so as long as the person is accepting and open to what I have to offer.
