Just Work

Just Work: Get Sh*t Done, Fast & Fair

We―all of us―consistently exclude, underestimate, and underutilize huge numbers of people in the workforce even as we include, overestimate, and promote others, often beyond their level of competence. Not only is this immoral and unjust, it’s bad for business. Just Work is the solution.

Just Work offers a practical framework for both respecting everyone’s individuality and collaborating effectively. This is the essential guide leaders and their employees need to create more just workplaces and establish new norms of collaboration and respect.

Radical Candor: How to Be a Kickass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity

Kim Scott fictionalizes her own experience at Google to show how work and life need not be at war, but can reinforce each other.

A humorous look at gender roles and cultural bias in the ever-shifting world of modern parenting. Richard wants to start a family, and he wants to do it as soon as he and his wife Sally graduate from Harvard Business School. But Sally is terrified of what having children will do to her.


The Measurement Problem
