Have you ever received feedback “You are too nice!” or “You don’t push back!” at your workplace? Do you feel your generosity is being taken advantage of by others at your workplace? Organizational psychologists suggest that our workplace is made up of 3 kinds of people: givers, takers and matchers. As women, we tend to be a giver, especially to requests that bring greater good to our community. Tse Tse will discuss the importance and success of givers.  She’ll talk about how you can foster generosity in your workplace, and how to protect givers from burnout and becoming pushovers.Are you a giver or taker at the workplace?
