About this session:
Isn't the idea to have selfless team members? Aren't selflessness and generosity key to collaboration and performing teams? New research by Wharton professor and best-selling author Adam Grant finds that being overly selfless and generous can actually have a high cost. Though organizations want to build a workforce of givers and not takers, givers need to rein themselves in for everyone's sake - or risk generosity burnout.
In an upcoming HBR Big Idea, Grant descrives the challenges of collaboration and the downside of generosity: If we don't put boundaries around it, givers will hurt the people they're trying to help - and half of them will burn out in the process.
On January 26, in an engaging, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Grant will share insights about generosity and collaboration. He will provide data about the costs of generosity, examples of generosity burnout, and concrete recommendations for managers on the most effective ways to ensure collaboration. Grant will focus on techniques to better manage yourself to improve your ability to collaborate with and manage others.
Grant is the author of the best-seller Give and Take and has been rated Wharton's top teacher for five consecutive years. He has been recognized as one of HR's most influential international thinkers. If you want to ensure a collaborative organization, learn how to achieve it while avoiding generosity burnout.
