A work husband or wife is the ticket to increased engagement in the work place. You can take CNN’s self-assessment to identify if you have a work spouse, but, you know you have one. I had a work husband a few companies back and we never got a ‘divorce’. I still call him for advice and tips in the realm of training and development. He’s a straight shooter, no chaser and I can count on him to steer me back on track. When I break up with a loser boyfriend, I give him a buzz for a pep talk. And when I get promoted I set up a call time so I can brag a little.
