Guest: Camille Sweeney and Josh Goldfield, co-authors of The Art of Doing.
What really separates the best from the rest? We all know that it takes hard work, dedication, and the occasional dose of luck for someone to make it to the top of their chosen field. Yet, we also suspect that it takes a little something more—but what? The Art of Doing asks today’s most successful celebrities, businessmen, and iconoclastic achievers, “How do you succeed at what you do?”
Camille Sweeney has known she wanted to be a writer since she was 5. She’s written for The New York Times and other publications. Josh Goldfield has worked on farms and as a carpenter and cartoonist. He was the Art Director of New York Magazine. His illustrations and photos for major magazines, record companies and book publishers have won numerous awards. Together this husband and wife team have learned a lot from their collaboration and the superachievers they interviewed for their book.
Guest: Adam Grant, Professor at the Wharton School at of the University of Pennsylvania and author of Give and Take.
Give and Take changes our fundamental ideas about how to succeed, both at work and in life. 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. Give and Take illuminates what effective networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and leadership skills have in common.
Using his own groundbreaking research as the youngest tenured professor at Wharton, Adam Grant examines the surprising forces that shape why some people rise to the top of the success ladder while others sink to the bottom. In professional interactions, it turns out that most people operate as either takers, matchers, or givers. Whereas takers strive to get as much as possible from others and matchers aim to trade evenly, givers are the rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return.
