How to effectively manage a former friend

Season #1

Whether we have to manage someone we used to be colleagues with, or are hiring a friend into our business as an entrepreneur, hiring a former friend (or family member) changes the relationship. And if we're not careful, it can change it in a not-so-good way.

In this episode we talk about the most important thing you can do when managing a former friend: having a conversation UP FRONT, when the tensions are low, recognizing that the relationship will be different now, how to give feedback, and how to have hard conversations. Do this and you can put an end to the saying "don't mix friends with money" ;)
