Building on two decades of original research into workplace issues and friendship patterns, sociologist and consultant Dr. Jan Yager offers insights into how to succeed by mastering workplace relationships. Based on an international survey of 400 men and women and over 100 interviews, Yager discovered a relationship unique to the workplace and business. She calls it a workship - more connected than an acquaintance but not as intimate as a friendship. However, workships, especially positive ones, help work to be more productive and more fun and are the "safest" and least complicated connections at work and in business.
