GIVE and TAKE: A Revolutionary Approach to Success
Monday, March 31, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM (MDT)
CTLF is partnering with Rocky Mountain HR People and Strategy to bring this timely and highly aligned conversation that changes our fundamental ideas about how to succeed – at work and in life.
Join us as Adam Grant, Professor of Management at Wharton and best-selling author, introduces three fundamental styles of professional interaction and their implications for individual and collective performance. He will discuss how to develop productive interactions to build richer networks, more innovative teams and more rewarding relationships.
Using his own groundbreaking research, Grant examines the surprising forces that shape why some people rise to the top of the success ladder while others sink to the bottom. In professional interactions, it turns out that most people operate as either takers, matchers, or givers. Whereas takers strive to get as much as possible from others and matchers aim to trade evenly, givers are the rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return.
Grant has been recognized as the single highest-rated professor in the Wharton MBA program and one of the world’s top 40 business professors under 40.
