For a Just Workplace, You Need ‘Radical Respect’
How to be respectful and respected at work—from the author of the revolutionary bestseller ‘Radical Candor.’
Previously published as ‘Just Work’ and now substantially revised and updated, ‘Radical Respect’ starts from a simple point of departure: organizations that optimize for collaboration and honor everyone’s individuality are more successful, joyful places to work.
What moves us away from Radical Respect? Kim Scott offers a “toxonomy” that breaks down a problem that often feels monolithic into its component parts. Once we break a problem down, we can more easily identify solutions.
No matter what your role is, this is the essential guide for helping to create the kind of workplace where you and those around you can thrive.

Having a Radical Candor coach and peers from other regions to practice with was invaluable.”
“Thank you so much for coming and working with our team. Everyone loved the workshop…everything you shared with us will help us be our best selves and best Hireologists.”
