Emily Edlynn - 2023-09-05
Calificación de Goodreads
As parents, we want our children to take responsibility for their schoolwork, their chores, and their choices. We want them to grow into independent adults, but when we see them struggling, we sometimes have a tendency to step in and problem-solve, telling them exactly what to do or even doing things for them ourselves. The problem is the more cont...

@jrdavids I mean, we can’t shield our kids from these pernicious messages. They’ll get them from our culture somehow. So using them as fodder for dialogue on the topic can be useful. I’m not an expert on this though! Wonder if @jesslahey would have time to pipe in. Def recommend her book.      fuente

Dar y recibir book cover
Dar y recibir
Por qué ayudar a los demás conduce al éxito (MARKETING Y VENTAS)
Adam Grant - 2013-04-09
Calificación de Goodreads
Dicen que la gente de éxito tiene tres cosas en común: motivación, capacidad y oportunidad. Si queremos alcanzar el éxito, necesitaremos además trabajo, talento y suerte. Hay, sin embargo, un cuarto ingrediente, un ingrediente crítico pero que a menudo pasa desapercibido: el éxito depende en gran parte de cómo interactuamos con los demás. Cada vez que interactuamos con alguien, debemos elegir entre intentar conseguir el máximo valor posible para nosotros o contribuir a que el otro consiga valor sin preocuparnos por lo que recibimos. Es decir, elegir entre ser «receptores » o ser «donantes». Dar y recibir te descubrirá la clave del éxito de quienes se vuelcan en los demás y cambiará para siempre tus percepciones sobre el triunfo y el fracaso. Pero te enfrentará a una paradoja: poner en práctica las ideas de este libro no te funcionará si sólo te mueve la ambición por conseguir el éxito.
