Product Details


“A necessary read. With empathy and clarity, Elaine unpacks what makes it so hard to honor ourselves and talk with each other. Unlearning Silence offers an opportunity and tools to change things within and around us – for ourselves and those we love.”
—Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone and co-host of the Dear Therapists podcast

Unlearning Silence is the book I wish I had when I started my career. Hering not only proves why silence is toxic, but, critically, goes a step further and shows us how to speak up in a way that is safe, values aligned, and has the greatest chance of being impactful. This book is going to change the workplace for the better.”
—Pooja Lakshmin MD, psychiatrist & best-selling author of Real Self-Care

“Too often as women, we are told we are the problem. Books tell us to just be more confident. To show up and then speak up. Elaine goes deeper and shows us that the silence we’ve been indoctrinated by runs deep and it is what holds us back and makes us feel small. A must read for every leader.”
Deepa Purushothaman, author of The First, The Few, The Only

“We cannot heal our world if we do not unlearn silence. An inviting and essential read.”
—Alex Elle, New York Times bestselling author of How We Heal

“Equal parts informative and inspiring. Unlearning Silence is at the core of negotiation, power, and influence. It is rare to find a book, like this one, that provides practical solutions to the problems it raises. Hering’s expertise is matched only by her empathy.” Alison Fragale, Professor of Organizational Behavior, University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School

“A balm to my wounded soul…”
Rev. Danté Upshaw, Program Director & Campus Pastor – Baltimore Urban Studies.

“This is a clear, compassionate read, and an important one.  I’ve rarely felt so seen and understood as when I read these pages. Creativity and innovation flow when people know how to use their voices, and leaders learn how to notice and disrupt patterns of silencing that haunt so many organizations, families and communities.”
—Katherine Sarafian, Animation industry senior executive and Academy Award® winning film producer

Unlearning Silence is a call to action for anyone who has been underestimated, told they shouldn’t speak out, and confined by stereotypes. Elaine has brilliantly pulled together a much needed roadmap for those looking to use the strength of their voice to build the teams, lives, and companies we need, while bringing out the best from the people they lead.”
—Eric Toda, Director, Social Marketing at Meta & Managing Director of Meta Prosper

“We can’t solve the world’s most pressing problems – and innovate our way into the future -  if we perpetually silence ourselves and others. Elaine turns conventional, inadequate advice to “just speak up” into actionable and effective strategies. A game changer for teams and leaders everywhere.”
—Dorie Clark, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Long Game and Executive Education Faculty, Columbia Business School
