Overview

Discrimination and harassment can wreak havoc on an organization. At best, they're a distraction. At worst, they bring companies to their knees.

In "Acting with Respect," author Geoffrey Scheer takes the methods he learned to analyze human behavior as an actor, director and playwright and applies them to the workplace. By dramatizing scenarios of discrimination and harassment, he gets to the heart of why people behave the way they do, and what the consequences can be when we fail to see beyond our own narrow point of view.

Drawing from the latest research on sexual harassment, unconscious bias and discrimination in all its forms, "Acting with Respect" offers up to date analysis and practical advice that will help you minimize office drama and build a culture of respect in the workplace.
