Most team leaders tend to encourage workplace friendships as it leads to improved productivity and better talent management. Yet, the opposite may also be true, as such friendships do not always have the desired effect for either of the parties involved. Too much of friendship can lead to a different form of engagement within a team, that can be emotionally draining and ultimately distracting from the real work. While there may be disagreements at home, such conflicts at workplace do not always stand the test of time. Friendships at work, especially if too close, can also affect those in the team, but not part of that inner social circle. Group outcomes may thus suffer due to this. While technology is supposed to blur the boundaries between work and friendship, it often does quite the opposite by highlighting others’ life through social media.
