In this powerful and perceptive book, Kim Scott offers a bold vision - a workplace where respect and collaboration prevail over domination and conformity. Just Work is a sparkling combination of moral courage and practical solutions. It belongs on the shelves - and in the hearts and minds - of leaders everywhere -- <b>Daniel H. Pink, #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>When</i> and <i>Drive</i></b> 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. Just Work helps answer the how. Kim Scott provides actionable, effective ways for fighting discrimination and harassment with engagement, collaboration and respect -- <b>Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org and OptionB.Org</b> 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 -- <b>Jeff Kinney, author of the bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series</b> * New York Times * Just Work 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. -- <b>Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and Director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, Harvard University</b> Packed with stories from Scott's career, Just Work offers a solutions-focused perspective on #MeToo, acknowledging that gender injustice doesn't exist in a vacuum and broadening the frame to consider diversity and inclusion writ large. Each of us has an important role in creating a fair and reasonable workplace. When we play that role and create the conditions for others to do the same, we can create real change today in the place where most of us spend most of our time--at work. -- <b>Darren Walker, President of the Ford Foundation</b> If you've been wringing your hands or hiding your head in the sand about the issues of injustice in your workplace (yes, yours!), this is the book to read. You will learn how to recognize and eradicate the bias, bad behavior and discrimination that is holding back your team and company from succeeding at the highest levels possible. -- <b>Sarah Kunst, Managing Director of Cleo Capital</b>
