“The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name.”

– Chinese proverb and intro to Fuckery

Fuckery is an ugly word, offensive, even. As it should be. Dysfunctional office behavior IS ugly and offensive. It causes lost productivity, disables effective communication, punishes good workers, rewards bad ones, and threatens the success of companies everywhere. Jon and Lori aim to change that with their book, Fuckery.

Together, they challenge leaders to break habits that damage teams and results. Equal parts playful and provocative, Fuckery balances firsthand experiences with exercises and original matrices. You can see the tools here.

With over forty years of leadership and coaching between them, they’ve developed teams at tech start-ups, nonprofits and Fortune 500 companies around the world.


Radius ECD advises leaders and teams on building trust and eliminating toxic environments. Participants said:

“In an invested environment this is a great concept and critical discussion for building success.”

“Great communication opportunity with the team. I have never had this conversation.”

“Takes the elephant out of the room – brings focus and accessible language to difficult subject matter.”

“Identified ways I can help my team using these tools. Very useful information.” 

“Raising our awareness about these ideas was incredibly helpful (putting the idea of fuckery on our radar). You should give a TED talk! Engaging and interesting throughout. So much to chew on – THANK YOU!”

    Lori conducted a lunch time program that was excellent on “Building Trust & Exposing Barriers to Success.” It was on 9/29/16 at the WA. Public Ports Association Conference. Thanks Lori for the intro and enlightenment.
