Why do some people rise to the top, while others sink to the bottom? For generations, we have focused on the individual drivers of success: passion, hard work, talent, and luck. But in today’s dramatically reconfigured world, success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others. This session will illuminate what effective networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and leadership skills have in common—and whether giving is the secret to getting ahead.

Adam Grant is the youngest full professor and single highest-rated teacher at Wharton Business School. He has been honored as one of Malcolm Gladwell’s favorite social science writers, one of BusinessWeek’s favorite professors and one of the world’s top 40 business professors under 40. He is the author of Give and Take, a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller that is being translated into more than two dozen languages and has been named one of Amazon’s best books of 2013, one of Fortune’s five must-read business books, and one of Oprah’s riveting reads. His speaking and consulting clients include Google, the NFL, Merck, Pixar, Goldman Sachs, Facebook, the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, the U.S. Department of State, and the U.S. Air Force, Army, and Navy. He has appeared on the Today Show, and has twice been featured in the most emailed New York Times article of the week—once as the author and once as the subject of a cover story. His studies have been highlighted in Quiet by Susan Cain, Drive and To Sell Is Human by Daniel Pink, and David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell. He is a former record-setting advertising director, junior Olympic springboard diver, and professional magician.
