Beginning with the first "F" on the school report card, we are trained to fear failure.
That fear only grows larger as we become adults because the stakes become higher. While fear of failure is only natural, it's important to make sure that fear doesn't become debilitating. In fact, if you approach failure differently, it can be an asset.
While it's good to have regular friends, everyone needs a best friend. You know, that person you can go to whenever you need help, a confidence boost, or just a laugh. The same concept applies to the workplace. While it's great to have trusted colleagues, it's especially nice to have one person in particular to confide in --- a work buddy.
