"Having known and worked with Erica Pinsky for many years, I was delighted to hear that she intended to put her practical lessons in building a respectful workplace culture into a book. And the book is everything one might hope it to be. A frank assessment of power, fear and disrespectful behaviours in the workplace, and the solutions needed to turn it around. A must for employers needing to avoid human rights liability, but also for creating a wonderful place to work for everybody."

"Erica Pinsky has hit on what is, for both employees and employers the key to sustained business success; an organizational culture embodying behaviours that lead to work environment where employees feel safe, included and respected – where they are encouraged and supported to take responsibility, resolve their conflicts and take action when they witness disrespectful behaviour. This is a topic all of us need to know more about. Given Erica's consulting professionalism focused on respect in the workplace, her book should be a great source of information and inspiration."
