I stumbled upon an article about Kat Cole and how she successfully climbed the ladder, and one article lead to another. She is mentioned as one of the examples in this article based on Adam Grant’s book Give and Take and is definitely worth the read!
Adam discusses the ‘givers’ in a professional setting- those who always step up to help others sometimes forgetting themselves along the way. On the other hand, the long term effect can be the eagerness to learn more and ultimately grow.
The best example of leadership, in my opinion, is learning to engage others in being “givers” as Grant mentions at the end of the article.
