The Dilemma of Workplace Generosity

Most people are willing to help, but most people don’t ask for what they need. Therefore, no help is given and individual, team, and organization performance suffer. What can be done about this dilemma? In this session, Professor Wayne Baker talks about key practices from his new book, All You Have To Do Is Ask, that ignite the cycle of giving and receiving. Heather Currier Hunt shares her story about leveraging this strategy at IDEO to unlock new ideas and solutions, and to enhance team performance.
