							What if people felt confident communicating what they are really thinking without fearing a negative response from their colleagues or boss? What if common phrases in organizations were "I'm not sure," "I need clarification," and "I have an idea"? Permission to Speak Freely explains the inhibitors that cause candid communication to feel unsafe and then provides tools to help leaders overcome those inhibitors so that a culture of candor can be cultivated. This book is a letter to leaders-filled with experience, research, and practicality-that implores all persons in positions of power to create a work environment characterized by honesty and trust that inspires everyone to share fearlessly, speak freely, and come forward with new ideas.

"Permission to Speak Freely is a rare leadership book that entertains and educates. The stories are memorable, the research is meaningful, and the takeaways are immediately actionable." - Adam Grant, Wharton professor and NYT bestselling author of Give and Take
