The new book of Adam Grant ‘Give and Take’ was named one of the best books of 2013 by Amazon, Apple, the Financial Times, and the Wall Street Journal. For generations, we focussed on individual characteristics behind success: passion, hard work, talent and luck. But today success is more and more depending on the interactions we have with each other. The research of Grant shows that most people either function as a giver, matcher or taker in a professional context. Takers want to get the most out of others, matchers aim at a mutual exchange, while givers are the exceptions who help others without asking anything in return.
Prof Dirk Buyens red this book for you and wants to share his opinion on it with you. Let Dirk and the new book of Adam Grant inspire you and discover if you are a giver or a taker!
