In this powerful and perceptive book, Kim Scott offers a bold vision – a workplace where respect and collaboration prevail over domination and conformity . . . a sparkling combination of moral courage and practical solutions. It belongs on the shelves – and in the hearts and minds – of leaders everywhere
In debates over workplace inequality, we don’t talk enough about the ‘how’ – how to respond to a boss or co-worker who acts unfairly, how exactly that person should change their behaviour. [This book] helps answer the how. Kim Scott provides actionable, effective ways for fighting discrimination and harassment with engagement, collaboration and respect
Scott’s experiences leading teams at Google and Apple led to this book, which espouses a workplace culture where leaders care deeply about their employees and challenge them to be their best selves
[This book] left me optimistic that we can create just workplaces. Kim Scott carefully explains how bias, prejudice and bullying undermine all organizations – even those with the best of intentions – and provides an actionable system for countering each. Her acknowledgment that none of us – herself included – are free of this behavior marks an important starting point for a difficult but necessary conversation
