To succeed, be a Giver in the workplace, not a Taker

first_imgIt may seem smart to focus on yourself at work to get a raise or a promotion or just plain recognition, but one of your best chances at getting ahead could be by helping the people around you to succeed instead.There is a great book that describes how taking a more selfless approach can end up benefiting the “giver” many times over.  In Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, Adam Grant describes three personality types:• Givers: Give without expecting anything in return.• Matchers: Give but expect something in return.• Takers:  Do exactly what their name suggests.Guess who are the good guys?  The Givers.  Guess who are the success stories?  Yup, the Givers!   And the Takers are not just the bad guys, but as the book explains, in this hyper-connected world they end up losing as they will be revealed for what they are, “users.” continue reading » 34SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Spurs edge out Southampton

first_img Tottenham were struggling to break through the visitors’ miserly defence, but were having more luck from distance. Lamela galloped forward and unleashed a 25-yard strike that Fraser Forster did brilliantly to tip on to the post, although the England goalkeeper was not so convincing when denying Eriksen soon after, watching helplessly as the ball crept wide after wriggling out of his grasp. Naughton was forced off with a nasty-looking injury in between those opportunities, but will have been cheered somewhat by his team-mates making the breakthrough in the 40th minute. Attacking down the left, Emmanuel Adebayor squared the ball to Chadli, who flicked to Eriksen and the Danish playmaker unleashed a fizzing strike from the edge of the box just out of Forster’s reach. It was a fine goal which appeared to rattle Southampton, who were thankful for a large dollop of luck just before the break as Chadli raced through on goal, only for his left-footed strike to hit the far post before being hacked clear. Spurs continued on top when the play resumed for the second half, although it looked like the match would be turned on its head seven minutes after the restart. Latching on to a through ball, Mane was barged off the ball by last-man Younes Kaboul. The Spurs skipper feared the worse when Mike Jones harshly called a foul, yet the referee inexplicably only gave a yellow card. It was a peculiar moment in a match Spurs were still looking most likely to score, with Bertrand doing well to block Chadli before Forster fumbled an Eriksen cross. Opposite number Hugo Lloris saved countryman Kaboul’s blushes after slicing a clearance, allowing Victor Wanyama to power a shot goalwards. It was a decent hit from the Kenyan – a connection Mane was unable to match as the winger wasted a late gilt-edged opportunity. Bertrand sent in a low cross for the summer signing, who somehow failed to make the right contact with the ball from six yards and directed wide. It was a huge let-off for Tottenham, so too was a stoppage-time attempt which drifted wide, as they held out for three points. Mauricio Pochettino got the better of Southampton successor Ronald Koeman as Tottenham ended their four-match wait for a Premier League win. Press Association It was a timely shot in the arm for Spurs ahead of the international break, having failed to win their last four top-flight matches and lost their previous two league games at White Hart Lane. Unlike recent weeks, though, there was no sign of a Europa League hangover as Jan Vertonghen had an early header cleared off the line, before Erik Lamela saw a shot pushed on to the post and Eriksen impressively struck from distance. Nacer Chadli hit the post as he attempted to double Spurs’ advantage before the break, from which they returned strongly and kept the visitors at bay. Sadio Mane’s contender for miss of the season in the closing stages was Saints’ best chance as the hosts held out for a win which will have been particularly sweet for Pochettino and his staff. Despite having last term led the south coast side to their best-ever Premier League campaign, the sold-out travelling fans showered him with abuse from the outset in north London. Pochettino may have been under pressure but so too was the Southampton backline, with Ryan Bertrand clearing a Vertonghen header off the line in the fourth minute. However, Saints soon settled and were themselves proving a nuisance at the other end and had a fine chance of their own, with only a last-ditch Kyle Naughton block preventing Mane turning in a Graziano Pelle cross. A Mane cutback just evaded Steven Davis as Southampton continued to up the ante, with Spurs target Morgan Schneiderlin having a close-range effort blocked. All eyes were on the former Argentina international at White Hart Lane, where he was taking on his former club for the first time since ending a successful 18-month stint at St Mary’s to take the reins in north London. Saints have confounded the naysayers by flourishing despite a host of key players following Pochettino out of the club, although a seventh straight win in all competitions was beyond Koeman’s side as a 20-yard strike from Christian Eriksen secured Spurs a 1-0 win. last_img read more

Ruby Walsh retains full faith in Un De Sceaux ahead of Clarence contest at Ascot

first_img Walsh admitted being unable to get into a rhythm on the Willie Mullins-trained gelding last month, but has been delighted with his homework since then. The rider said: “We just felt he was a bit buzzy on the day, it was hard to get him in a rhythm. He was standing too far back at some and getting in too deep at others, I was just never in a good rhythm with him. “I couldn’t have been happier with him before he fell, I was travelling really well, I saw a stride and asked him, but he changed his mind.” Walsh reckons Sire De Grugy sets a standard Un De Sceaux has to meet at Ascot. He told Racing UK: “He’s schooled really well since, his work is good, we’re happy with him and Sire De Grugy is a new challenge for us. He sets a standard and we have to get up there. “We’re happy and we’re looking forward to it. He likes what he does, he’s brave, he likes to get on with it and attack fences, I enjoy riding him but the margin for error is quite small. “I think he’s a thrilling horse to ride.” Sire De Grugy should prove a proper adversary for Un De Sceaux, having won this race in 2014 as well as the Champion Chase. Ruby Walsh is confident the real Un De Sceaux will emerge when the exciting two-miler bids to atone for his expensive Leopardstown fall in the Sodexo Clarence House Chase at Ascot on Saturday. The eight-year-old came down at the second-last fence in the Paddy Power ‘So Quick, So Easy iPhone App’ Chase when making all the running to that point and looking likely to justify prohibitive odds of 1-4. He had also taken a tumble on his chasing debut but in between the two blips, had been peerless in four starts that yielded a hat-trick of Grade One triumphs. Press Association After a mixed last campaign, the 10-year-old has been in fine form this winter, winning the Tingle Creek at Sandown for a second time before just losing out in a terrific duel with Sprinter Sacre in the Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton. Trainer Gary Moore said: “He is in great order and as good as can be expected, so it’s fingers crossed. If anything, he is a fraction better than last time. “He’s better in softer ground, he makes soft ground look like good ground. It would definitely make his chances better – I think I’ll be the only one praying for rain at Cheltenham. “I’ve got great respect for Un De Sceaux, what he did last year was unbelievable, and he is the one to beat, but if don’t try you don’t know. “The confidence I have in my horse could not be any higher, I am very confident – whether that is good enough to win, we won’t know until Saturday.” last_img read more
