Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.
A professional speaker believes that it is extremely beneficial for employees, especially those on the same team, to become friends with each other. A good, friendly rapport with your co-workers, and even your superiors, is always a huge bonus in your professional life. Here are a few reasons why:
It helps keep morale up in your workplace. Work shouldn’t be all about work. It’s also a place where you can expand your social circle. Don’t be afraid to mingle with your co-workers at the water cooler. Not only will it help you make and keep friends, this keeps everyone’s moods up even if everyone is under heavy stress.
It makes sure everyone on the team is on the same page. A professional speaker adds that if you, your team and your superior are friendly with each other, team meetings will go much smoother. It is easier to talk openly and share your ideas about how to tackle certain tasks if you know that everyone’s ideas are listened to.
It promotes good teamwork. Friends are more likely to work well with each other than just acquaintances are, and with any team effort, teamwork is the key.
It makes work fun. School was fun because you and your friends hung out. The office is no different. Be friends with everyone you work with, and motivating yourself to go to work shouldn’t be a chore anymore.
We didn’t learn to make friends in school, just to forget about them once we graduate. No man is an island, and you can’t expect to grow up in your professional life without making friends. Therefore, being friendly while at work is top advice by professional speakers.
