    After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. "I was in 'the void,'" she writes, "a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe." Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build.

    With Give and Take, Adam Grant not only introduced a landmark new paradigm for success but also established himself as one of his generation's most compelling and provocative thought leaders. In Originals, he again addresses the challenge of improving the world but now from the perspective of becoming original: choosing to champion novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battle conformity, and buck outdated traditions. How can we originate new ideas, policies, and practices without risking it all?

    For generations, we have focused on the individual drivers of success: passion, hard work, talent, and luck. But today, success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others. It turns out that at work, 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.

    The long march to the boss’s office to get evaluated - it’s a moment we all dread. Performance reviews are awkward. They’re biased. They stick us in boxes and leave us waiting far too long for feedback. It’s no surprise that by the end of 2015, at least 30 of the Fortune 500 companies had ditched performance evaluations altogether. But let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    The motivations behind today's most successful leaders and entrepreneurs come to a simple yet decisive explanation: there are people who give, people who take, people who match and people who fake. Our world is filled with these givers, takers, matchers and fakers. Amazingly, those who succeed (not only personally but for their clients and companies) don't take or match. They give. (Although they're not necessarily philanthropic.)

    In vielen Unternehmen wird Kreativität nicht sehr geschätzt. Bevorzugt werden Leistungsträger, die sich einfügen und nicht durch eigene Ideen hervorstechen wollen. Dabei sind es gerade die origi-nellen Nonkonformisten, die mit inno-vativen Veränderungen der Wirtschaft neue Impulse geben. Der renommierte Organisationspsychologe Adam Grant zeigt, welche Menschen die größten Originale sind, und er macht klar, wie man seine Eigenheit besser ins Spiel bringt, Verbündete gewinnt und den richtigen Zeitpunkt zum Handeln wählt.

    Gute Typen haben immer das Nachsehen und die Egoisten räumen ab - diese populäre Auffassung stimmt heute nicht mehr. Denn gerade mit einer altruistischen Einstellung kommt man meist besser voran. Im geschäftlichen Umgang wie im Privatleben müssen wir immer entscheiden, wie wir uns anderen gegenüber verhalten: Nehmen oder geben? Sind wir nur auf die eigenen Ziele bedacht oder tragen wir auch zum Vorteil anderer bei?
