Adam Grant Video 1 - Types of interaction

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Why success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others There are three fundamental styles of interaction. My goal today is to introduce you to these three styles and get you thinking about what is my style, what are the styles of the people that I deal with every day, and what are the implications of that knowledge for success. Are you ready? I was going to go there anyway, but thanks for the affirmation. Your style of interaction is a mindset that you carry around anytime you interact with somebody else to exchange something of value. On one end of the spectrum, we have people that I've come to call takers. Takers are always trying to get stuff from other people and avoid giving back unless they have to. Takers excel at critical skills, like social loafing and shirking. They're the people who volunteer for the interesting, visible, important projects, leave the groundwork for everyone else, and somehow walk away with the lion share of credit for collective achievements. On the other end of the spectrum, we have people that I've come to call givers. A giver is more than a philanthropist, more than a volunteer. It's somebody who enjoys helping others, and often does it with no strings attached. Givers are people who share their knowledge freely, who provide mentoring to junior colleagues, who show up early or stay late to support the people around them. Many of us love the idea of being givers, because it resonates with our core values, but we also know there are takers out there. So what most of us do is we reserve giving for our families, our friends, maybe a few trusted colleagues. And in the rest of our interactions, we choose a third style, which is called matching. If you're a matcher, you try to keep an even balance of give and take quid pro quo. I'll do something for you, if you do something for me. That seems like a pretty safe way to live your life. The question today is, is that the most effective and productive way to live your life?
