I read a book this year called Give and Take by Adam Grant. He proposes an interesting model of organizational interaction.
He says there are three types of people: takers, matchers, and givers.
I saw a video recently where Grant applies this theory to building a team. He gives three pieces of advice.
Some would think that if everyone gave more than they received, you would end up losing somehow. Grant says the studies reveal otherwise.
People with capability who give generously win.
“If your interactions are ruled by generosity, your rewards will follow suit,” says Grant.
