Why are givers at the top and bottom of the success ladder?
Ever wonder what makes some of your interactions successful and others failures? Give and Take author Adam Grant also wanted to know this answer so he spent 10 years of his life studying the professional choices of leaders from all walks of life.
What he found were givers, takers and matchers. Grant’s startling discovery is that givers dominate both the top and bottom of the success ladder. Grant explores compelling research that illustrates how—in spite of the risk—giving is more powerful than people believe. Grant’s book examines the special behavior that’s characteristic of the givers at the top.
Why does some giving leave us fatigued while other giving invigorates?
Perhaps because we aren’t modeling the kind of giving Grant has found to be successful. Learn more about the special behavior behind healthy giving and why it brings winning results.
