Friends or Just Friendly?
It’s important to know the difference between a teammate who is a friend and a teammate who is friendly. Most teams will have both categories within them. Can everyone on a team be friends? I believe that can be achieved with intention and enough time. The problem is that the two categories are often confused as being the same. Hurt and disappointment happens when people feel like someone was a friend and later found out that person was simply friendly as discovered when that person maybe didn’t have their back or didn’t reciprocate something that a friend would.
