Adam Grant – Give and Take

Adam Grant - Give and Take bookIn this podcast episode I’m sharing a book that I’ve recently read and have been telling everyone about. It’s been a real eye-opener for me as it describes one important aspect of who I am and how that helps me be successful plus it points out where I often fail.

And, whilst there are thousands of books on the topic ‘What does it take to be successful?’ this book flips conventional wisdom and presents a unique and surprising perspective.

Our Topic: Adam Grant, Give and Take
