Functional or slightly dysfunctional, office life can become similar to our family life. We spend the majority of our time with our coworkers, we don’t always get to choose who they are or what roles they have. We can see patterns emerge in our work life which may spill over from our own family structure—birth order, and relationships with our parents, siblings and even our spouse. How many of us have a “work wife” or “work husband”—a person who falls into that dynamic with us at the office? It’s important to keep your relationships at work honest, engaged, and appropriate. Learn how to keep your work relationships from falling into areas of dysfunction that we may see in our familial histories.
