Software

Dustin walked into my office on a Monday morning looking a little disheveled, with bags under his eyes. But he also had a big grin on his face having figured out what caused production to go down this weekend.

Givers and Takers

I recently came across research that delves into this exact topic. Give and Take is a book by Adam Grant, a professor in organizational psychology at Wharton School of Business. His research found people can generally be cast into three categories – givers, takers and matchers.

Givers look to help others without any strings attached. They make an introduction, give advice, or share knowledge – and never expect reciprocation.

Dustin was a giver. Amber was a taker.
