Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success

April 29, 2013
Book Passage
San Francisco, CA

Meet the youngest tenured and single highest-rated professor at The Wharton School, Adam Grant, for this FREE event.

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

Note: This is not a Greater Good Science Center event.

At this event, Adam Grant presents a FREE signing and discussion of his new book, Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success.

In Give and Take, Adam Grant highlights what effective networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and leadership skills have in common. His book draws on pioneering research in work place interactions as he explores how “takers,”—who strive to get as much as possible from others—“matchers,”—who aim to trade evenly—and “givers”—the rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return—are able to inspire or impede success in individuals, organizations and communities.
