The new economy is no longer about the Takers, the way the “Wolf of Wall Street” lived. It’s not about stepping on people to get to the top (although, the people that do, probably always will in some way, shape, or form - and they’ll always fall).
It’s not about going it alone. Lone Ranger – not so much anymore.
Today’s economy, today’s business, today’s most awesome workplace cultures are built on the backs of Givers. The people who want to see others succeed. The people who want to help their colleagues reach their goals.
It’s about being open to help.
The Givers win not only with profits, growth, employee engagement as Nathan Podsakoff of the University of Arizona uncovered in his meta-analysis of 3500 different businesses in different industries. They win with a higher customer satisfaction rate, a higher rate of efficiency, more effective collaboration, and better productivity.
