John Higgins and Megan Reitz
Simply demanding that people speak-up, show some courage and do the right thing (in the eyes of the person doing the demanding) is a recipe for continued silence. Meanwhile the world is filled with scandal as situations already known to many come to light – from emission scandals, to fraudulent financiers, healthcare malpractice and on… a fresh example arrives every week. Then there’s the good ideas and missed opportunities, unheard because they didn’t come from the right sort of person, in the right sort of way.
Everyone claims to be listening and standing by idealised representations of a world without politics, prejudice or shame. In this applauded and rigorously researched book, readers are shown how to engage with the power and hierarchy that make up the social reality of the workplace – and what can be done to create and sustain a speak-up, listen-up culture that works with the world as it is.Buy Book
