Are you a giver or a taker?

Having read Originals by Adam Grant a few weeks ago, I decided to try the prequel - Give and Take.

It's another interesting read, which encourages us all to examine whether we help or hinder others. And whether that has an impact on our business.

Grant's contention is, of course, that being a giver brings positive change to a business and he presents a range of examples that would back it up.

There's an old saying that those who give regularly and generously to others and especially to charity never become poor doing so. Ask Bill Gates. Perhaps there is something in that.

I've always considered myself a giver but I know I can be a taker, too. Which isn't always a bad thing. Read Grant's book and decide where you stand.
