Is It Possible To Be Friends With Your Boss?
Is it possible to be friends with your boss? WHOM’s listeners weighed in on this topic and the results are surprising.
First of all, what do AJ and Nikki think?
Nikki doesn't think it's a good idea, because of complications in the workplace. In her opinion, there should be clear boundaries. It's always a good quality to be friendly; however, there are many things you would confide in a friend that you shouldn't tell your employer. The friendship could also create jealousy in the office, when other people see the friend being treated better than themselves.

AJ, on the other hand, believes it’s perfectly acceptable to be friends. As a manager, he has had successful friendships with his employees.
