Adam Grant's Generosity Tracker: How to maximize your giving

Track times you are a Giver, Taker, and Matcher based on Adam Grant's Give and Take book.
Adam Grant summarizes the message behind his book, , with a quote from Keith Ferrazzi:
"I’ll sum up the key to success in one word—generosity.”
If you are in a leadership position at your company or looking to be a better teammate, this doc will help you figure out if your actions qualify you as a Giver, Taker, or Matcher based on Adam's definitions below:
Givers - People who enjoy helping others—and frequently do it without any strings attached
Takers - People who love to get as much as possible from others and never want to give anything back, unless they absolutely have to
Matchers - People that like to keep an even balance of ‘give and take’ (majority of people)
