Fascinating article, not for the article's content, but for the responses to it. This is the first article where I have read through all the responses, and, in doing so, found amazing people I would like to meet.
See what I mean by reading the responses. Here, you can truly separate "Givers" from "Takers." This fits with all the research I have seen on networks. It follows especially the great research Adam Grant shares in his book, "Give and Take." Grant, a Wharton professor, shares the powerful insights that Takers win in the short term while Givers (more like the tortoise in "The Tortoise and the Hare,") win in the long term.
At the end of the day, I am so grateful to all the givers I have met in the business world.
