Business Mentoring Series – Building a Culture of Giving with Adam Grant



When companies hire Adam Grant to help them, the first question they always want to ask is about hiring. Since so much of his research is about the benefits of giving, how can they build a culture of giving, where people are sharing knowledge, teaching skills, and putting the good of the organization before themselves? Surprisingly, Adam says that’s not as important as executives think—at least not in the way they think it’s important. There are a lot of tactics that will help you build a culture of giving, whether it’s in your company or your family.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How to use hiring practices to improve your culture
  • How to redefine success for star producers
  • The way feedback makes someone be more giving
  • How to ask for help
