As you continue to network throughout the day, think not only about what others can do for you, but what you can do for another person. Adam Grant, Wharton Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, champions the benefits of giving in his book titled Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success.
Earlier this month, Adam presented the premise of his book at a networking event I attended. As a result of attending, my outlook on networking has forever changed.
Instinctively, we all have our own personal reciprocity styles that we practice. Through extensive research, Grant postulates that individuals fall into three categories: giver, taker, matcher.
Which style do you practice?
Most importantly who have you helped at the conference this weekend?
