This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Jan Yager. The original live interview was 6/21/13.

This is the e-book version of the 2nd edition of FRIENDSHIFTS: THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP AND HOW IT SHAPES OUR LIVES by sociologist, friendship expert, and coach Jan Yager, Ph.D.

The book is based on the author’s doctoral thesis and additional original research consisting of surveys and interviews. "Friendshifts" is a word  Dr. Yager coined to denote how sometimes  our friendships  may shift throughout our lives, and even how we define a friend. Fortunately, in some instances, lifelong friendship does happen. FRIENDSHIFTS explores what you can do to help a friendship to last. Even with the most enduring friendships, there may be an ending because of death. The examples, anecdotes, quotes, and studies cited throughout the book reinforce the notion that the right friends will help you to get ahead or to be happy in life, and even to live a longer life; the wrong friends can sabotage you or even get you hurt or killed.

Dr. Jan Yager, who has a Ph.D. in sociology, is author of more than twenty-five highly-acclaimed and award-winning books.

She is regularly interviewed on programs including The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show, Good Morning, America, The View, CBS News' & the Sunday Morning Show.
