Give and Take – Adam Grant, 2013​

This is one of our favourite books in recent years.  It shows, through vast amount of psychological research, how, when we go out of our way to help others

This is one of our favourite books in recent years.  It shows, through vast amount of psychological research, how, when we go out of our way to help others, good things happen.  

In the rich make-up of society, there are 3 main profile types: those who give, those who take and those who match.  It might be logical to assume that the most successful profile type is a matcher, but Grant disproves this time and again with fabulous real-world stories showing that not only are we hard-wired, as humans, to want to be helpful, but also that authentic helpfulness reaps rewards in so many different ways.  

Deeply influential thinking when considering the future of work.​
