If you behave like a father to your employee, be prepared for her to behave like a daughter.  
If you behave like a friend to your employee, be prepared for her to behave like a friend. If you behave like a sister to your employee, be prepared for her to behave like a sister. 

But. 

In all instances, you will inevitably find, that you would actually like an employee, to behave as an employee. 

So be a leader for once. 

Leadership is lonely, especially for those of us seeking approval, seeking a casual conversation or hoping to strike up a friendship. 

But. 

I’m told, it’s worth it in the long run. 

And I have a feeling, it will be.
