Having a best friend at work is one of the twelve key questions that is predictive of job satisfaction. The Gallup organization studies indicators of work satisfaction and highlighted this in their book First, Break all the Rules, by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman.
They tell of a manager from within a large company that employed several hundred people, earned a reputation for not playing well with others. This manager collected information and used it to employ fault finding and blaming techniques to make other employees look bad. She was famous for identifying problems, but she rarely has suggestions for solutions.
She continuously begged for a more prestigious title, and more financial rewards, so she could feel superior and tell others what to do. Finally, when she announced that she was job hunting, not a single co-worker regretted her decision. She not only burned her bridges behind her, but she burned the bridges in front of her.
The DiSC Assessment Test can be a key tool to assist managers and work team members to developing key work relationships, and building bridges to success.
