Give and take

ABGT Members Only Meeting Nov. 7, 2023
ABGT’s Mission
We draw inspiration from the book Give and Take, by Adam Grant.

We believe in and live by the Principle of Reciprocity, and believe that this principle is NOT governed by self-interest.

The best leaders are givers and are always including someone else in their meetings or presentations with others.

Team work without a giving mentality will fall short.

There’s a thin line between a giver and a doormat.

Takers have a unique profile and are easy to spot.

Big Event

Do we want to host a Big Event in 2024 or do we want to start planning a big event in 2025 and make it an every other year event?

It is going to take someone special within the group to manage the process and work with people who want to volunteer for a committee.
