Friction in the workplace is part of life. It’s inevitable that when you gather a group of people together to work towards a common goal, friction will
arise. We are all human and as such we are prone to good days and bad days, we are likely to get sick, feel tired at work and feel stressed from work
and personal pressures. Friction happens simply from interacting with one another. Think of the friction you have experienced yourself; when you resent
someone holding a meeting that drags on too long while you have a million other things you could be doing, or when someone interrupts you while you
are trying to get an important task done with a looming deadline, when someone sends far too many unnecessary and long-winded emails or when someone
doesn’t trust you enough to just do your job without breathing down your neck… whatever the reason, friction is an inevitable part of working
life and something we have all experienced. While it is inevitable and unavoidable, it can also be dangerous for an organisation’s productivity if
it gets out of hand. ..
