The Secret Power of Giving

The other day, we stumbled upon a fascinating article examining the impact of giving and generosity. We wanted to share it with you!

In the article “Is Giving the Secret to Getting Ahead?” writer Susan Dominus details the research of Adam Grant.

It is a longer article, but really interesting to read! Reading the whole article provides more detail and context, but to summarize for you: Grant studies the impact of giving, particularly the impact in the workplace. Grant finds that for many, feeling a sense of responsibility for others can potentially increase productivity and happiness at work.

The article may have implications: how do we see ourselves at work? What are our own motivations? What makes you do what you do?

Take a look and tell us what you think!

Good Happens.

Pay it Forward!
