Employees who tell it like it is without any concern for your feelings might get on your nerves a bit--but they are the most undervalued people in business. That's according to Adam Grant, author of the book Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success. Grant calls these kinds of people "disagreeable givers.""Disagreeable givers are the people who, on the surface, are rough and tough, but ultimately have others' best interests at heart," Grant said. "They are the people who are willing to give you the critical feedback that you don't want to hear--but you need to hear." 

Disagreeable givers are often rough to be around because they like brutally honest feedback.
