    5 mistakes managers often make


    4. There's a difference between being friends and being friendly

    Never forget that your doctor is your boss, not your friend. It’s a dangerous line to cross. While you may be tennis partners and golf friends on the weekends, during the workday he or she is the boss and you are the employee – and the twain shall never meet.

    Mark Twain wrote about “the twain shall never meet”. When this was uttered he was talking about two “things” that were so different that they had absolutely no opportunity to unite. This is the relationship that occurs when “bosses are friends”. There will always be an elephant in the room.”

    Go golfing, play tennis, but from nine to five, it’s business. Keep it that way and feelings won’t tend to get so hurt.
