Having successful relationships in the workplace requires only three simple things:
- people who think exactly like you do.
- people who have the same exact needs as you.
- people who have a perfect history with you.
If you DON'T have these three things, then I'd consider you normal. And, if you do have these three things, they're likely to be accompanied by their three cousins - groupthink, mediocrity, and stagnation.
