Question to Ask The Workplace Doctors about a friend becoming a boss: he changed. He was more serious, which I expected, but he turned neglectful.
A work friend of mine became my boss two years ago when two executives asked me as a promotional thing if I want to transfer to my friend’s dept. to help fix that department’s. issues. I said yes knowing my friend would be my boss but since he and I had the same work ethic and got along great I was happy to finally be around a colleague who wasn’t lazy.
