The organizational psychologist Adam Grant, who many know from his New York Times columns, describes three human orientations, of which we are all capable: the givers, the takers, and the matchers. These also influence whether organizations are joyful or toxic for human beings. His studies are dispelling a conventional wisdom that selfish takers are the most likely to succeed professionally. And, he is wise about practicing generosity in organizational life â€” what he calls making â€œmicroloans of our knowledge, our skills, our connections to other peopleâ€ â€” in a way that is transformative for others, ourselves, and our places of work.
