This book narrates an incident about giving and receiving. The story questions where the impact of our exchanges most comes from: the outcome or the approach?

This story provides an opportunity to reflect on the way we interact with one another. The research-backed insights invite us to consider and, perhaps reconsider, the basis on which we collaborate.

Perhaps we need to adapt our approach to giving and receiving for greater personal and organisational effectiveness.

“Reading this book reminds me of the powerful repercussions of working and living with integrity. If you want a simple yet powerful way to remind yourself of the far-reaching effects of being true to yourself and to others, read this book.

Highly recommended!”
