"Give and Take", which makes the business case for generosity, has been a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. Jack Welsh refers to the "generosity gene" as the magical eighth factor in his hiring decisions. People who are generous with their connections, time and knowledge have greater trust, and stronger networks, from which they get more favours.
So how can we better spot and measure this valuable but often hidden generosity component of influence? And how can we encourage people to build habits of generosity within a business context?
