A day at the office with Key and Peele: who can be the [pseudo] nicest co-worker?
This video is a hilarious portrayal of that person in the office who is always trying to come across as being overly generous but has less then altruistic intentions. It was posted as a response to an article in today’s New York Times that examines organizational psychologist Adam Grant’s new book, “Give and Take,” which takes a look at givers, takers, matchers (the in between category where most people fall) and succeeding in the workplace.
Adam Grant’s interview can be viewed here.
I was so intrigued by Adam’s theories about givers, takers and matchers that I already reserved the book from the library. I think I fall in the “matcher” category, hopefully closer to the “giver” end of the spectrum. And I am certainly nothing like Key and Peele (note: the best part was when they are sitting at their respective non-descript desks and are pretending to be fiercely typing away).
I’ll report back post read with a review.
