P25Life Reads: Give and Take – A Revolutionary View of Success

Hello everyone and happy belated Thanksgiving!  In the spirit of the giving season, I’d liked to share a review about a book that revolutionized my personal beliefs about giving and success.  The book is called Give and Take – A Revolutionary View of Success and was written by Adam Grant, a top-rated professor at the Wharton Business School.
 

The premise of the book is that people fall into three categories of reciprocity:

  • Givers - people who give more favors that they receive

  • Matchers - people who give as many favors as they receive

  • Takers - people who receive more favors than give

Why NOTHING is ever personal - Let's build up that armor!

“This is the worst F@$k!ng support I have ever received! Escalate NOW!!! I want to speak to your manager!!!”

 

UGH. Highly reactive customers are the WORST!!! After a year and a half of working in support, I’ve had to develop a sort of emotional armor whenever customers get really out of hand. Luckily, most of my customers are civil and I’ve learned ways to calm them down (i.e. talk more slowly and softly); however, I occasionally get a call where I have to literally walk off the anger and frustration afterward. I may even request a hug from one of my friends/coworkers to absorb the negative shock (LOL, professional I know…).
