Breaking Corporate Silence: Why did General Motors management avow they did not know about the multi-year festering ignition problem? Why did V.A. employees in internal documents “portray a culture of silence” based upon fear of retaliation? These “Cultures of Silence” resulted in substantial loss of productivity, revenue, trust and even loss of life.
Dr. Rob Bogosian and Christine Mockler Casper have written Breaking Corporate Silence -How High Influence Leaders Create Cultures of Voice. It is critical now more than ever that employees, all employees have voice. The authors are passionate about leaders understanding their power and responsibility for creating a culture of voice so employees will contribute ideas, concerns and insights.
Breaking Corporate Silence, the first extensively researched book on this prevalent phenomenon, highlights the difference between a Culture of Silence and a Culture of Voice. It provides diagnostics to allow leaders and their organizations to measure the consequences of silence and it provides a tested set of practices that leaders can use to engage the voice of their employees and sustain that voice. The result: a culture of engagement, honesty, productivity, rapid knowledge transfer and enhanced competitive advantage. Breaking Corporate Silence covers the causes, symptoms and results of silence. It provides thought provoking self-reflections, and tools, based upon their collective 55 years of research, interviews, coaching, observations and insights.
As US corporations strive to deal with turbulence, now more than ever their leaders need “guidance” on how to face reality, apply ethical standards and understand the core of human motivation. To enhance productivity, develop personal power, and the “sight” to make rational decisions in the present, Breaking Corporate Silence is required.

The book gets directly to the point and the reader learns practical skills that can have an immediate impact on communication.
What I found most interesting was the discussion of good intentions with bad results. Management wants to develop trust and openness but their actions often result in just the opposite. The book offers specific guidelines and suggestions that are extremely practical.
I couldn't put the book down. I highly recommend Breaking Corporate Silence.
were met with a lot of "bovine stares" when asking "where and who are you going with?".
Breaking Corporate Silence lends itself to good examples when dealing with issues of marriage and children.
It is a quick read but left many lasting thoughts. I know that our grandchildren face even more outside
influences than our family did due to the internet and all the electronics available today.
