About the Session

How do you unleash generosity and get the resources you need in any team or organization? In this workshop, Wayne Baker will provide proven tools that will help you and your teams accelerate the flow of resources and build a culture of generosity.

Drawing on his new book, All You Have To Do Is Ask, Baker will show you how to find what you need, and ask for it in ways that work. The workshop will give you access to real-time tools that support a culture of generosity, including a digital assessment, learning map, and access to a generosity community knowledge and resource sharing platform called Givitas. You will leave with a new appreciation of the power of how to ask for what you need in ways that transform what’s available for your success.
