Coworkers are not your friend

Coworkers are not your friend

  • 맛집영어 영어수강 영어교재 이미지
  • Colleagues can be wonderful people. Colleagues can have lots of interests in common. In an ideal environment, everyone in the office can support each other not only professionally but also personally. At times, the entire team in a healthy work environment can also hang out with each other outside the office and have fun.
    However, unfortunately, going to lunch, exchanging holiday greetings and sharing jokes with colleagues do not necessarily mean that they are your friends. It can be difficult at times to know if a colleague sees you as a friend even if you see them as a friend. Colleagues can sometimes be put in competitive situations for promotions and other favors from supervisors. While some colleagues use acceptable strategies to achieve such goals, others may use you as a stepping stone for their own means. At work, everyone is there to earn a living. To avoid such difficult situations as whether a colleague is really your friend, your best strategy may just be to stay professional and see them as professional relationships. Nothing more. Nothing less.
