Talbott Tidbits: Give and Take by Adam Grant

Author: Leah York, CAE; President of Talbott Talent




Give and Take, by Adam Grant, is among the books I recommend most often. So what’s the difference between givers and takers? And which one do you identify with more?



My favorite quotes from the book:


“When givers succeed they create a ripple effect for others to succeed.” -Adam Grant


“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
