What makes a workplace work? In Adam Grant’s view, it’s helping. The benefits of serving others is central to Grant’s work and research as a professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. (His students would agree: Grant has been Wharton’s top rated professor for seven straight years.)
A leading expert in organizational psychology, the study of workplace dynamics, Grant has authored four bestselling books—Give and Take, Originals, Option B, and Power Moves—and is a sought-after speaker and consultant. He hosts the TED original podcast WorkLife and is the founder of Givitas, an online platform for efficiently giving and receiving help. He writes regularly for The New York Times and serves on the Defense Innovation Board at the Pentagon.
