Philadelphia, PA, June 19, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- In this Soundview Live webinar, A Revolutionary Approach to Success, 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. The findings from Grant’s book Give and Take will change your fundamental ideas about how to succeed—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. Grant illuminates what effective networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and leadership skills have in common.
