Adam Grant - Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success

Join Adam Grant on book tour in San Francisco as he shares his new book Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, which illuminates what effective networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and leadership skills have in common.

Monday, April 29, 2013

Adam Grant, the single highest-rated professor at Wharton, one of BusinessWeek's favorite professors and one of the world's top forty business professors under forty, has long been fascinated by the idea of success: Why do some people rise quickly up the corporate ladder while others languish at the bottom? Beyond effort, talent and luck, is there something else that drives our productivity and accomplishments?

Grant’s long-awaited book, GIVE AND TAKE: A Revolutionary Approach to Success uses groundbreaking research to show how our interactions with others shape our achievements. We assume that the best path to success is to get at least as much from others as we give. Surprisingly, though, it turns out that extraordinary results are more often attained by people who actually prefer to contribute more to others than they receive in return.

The most sustainable way to get to the top is to focus not on your solo journey, but on bringing others with you.
