by Derek Irvine Recognize This! -- By giving away to others, we reap far more for ourselves. Did you know humans are irrational? Shocking, I know. (Seriously, a book I enjoy is Dan Ariely's Predictably Irrational.) I mention this today to point you to my post on Compensation Cafe where I unpack a powerful statement made by Harvard Business school professor Francesca Gino in a recent Harvard Business Review article. She references research that shows employees are happier and more productive when they "share their bonuses with coworkers and charities." I'm happier with the bonus I deserve for my hard work when I'm also empowered to share it colleagues and those in greater need than I. Truly powerful and profound, reinforcing (as I point out in the Cafe post):
- We succeed through the efforts, help and support of others.
- There’s always someone else in more need than we are.
