Givers, Takers and Matchers: Improve Team and Business Success by Mixing and Matching
Hear Keynote Speaker Adam Grant's Summit Opening Session!

The Summit Committee is excited to present Wharton's youngest tenured professor, Adam Grant, at the Summit opening session titled, Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success. Drawing on his new book of the same name, Adam will introduce three fundamental styles of professional interaction, and demonstrate their profound implications for individual and collective performance. He will reveal surprising insights about what it takes to develop productive interactions, and how leaders, managers and employees can use this knowledge to build richer networks, more innovative teams, and more rewarding service relationships. Adam will also dive into how to build on fundamental blocks of success through skills in collaborating, talent management, persuasion, and negotiation.

In his best-selling book, he examines how being generous with our time and expertise impacts on our personal success. He identifies three groups of people -- givers, takers and matchers.

• Givers are inclined to give their favors generously
• Matchers look for quid pro quo
• Takers are in life for themselves and will only help others if there is something more in it for them in the end. 

Join us at this opening session to self-identify which group you belong to and where to find the most successful people!

Adam has been described as one of Malcom Gladwell's favorite social science writers, calling his work "brilliant." His New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling book was named as Forbes' most dynamic social innovation initiatives of 2013.
