Episode Info:

How do you give difficult, impactful feedback in your workplace without offending anyone or being misconstrued?

“Pause, right now, and think about that moment in your career when someone told you something that stung a bit at the time, but stood you in good stead for the next 10 years. That is radical candour.”

If you just do one thing this week, listen to Kim Scott, co-creator of an executive education company and workplace comedy series based on her best-selling book Radical Candor - Be A Kick Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity

Kim led AdSense, YouTube, and Doubleclick teams at Google and then joined Apple University to develop and teach “Managing at Apple.” She’s also been a CEO coach at Dropbox, Qualtrics, Twitter, and several other tech companies. Kim knows what she’s talking about. 

In this latest episode she talks about why it’s so difficult to be frank with people, how to be better at being candid, where you should start and more importantly, how to be radically candid in today’s workplace - i.e. how to give feedback when you’re not face to face. 

“If you're doing it right, if you're doing routine radical candour maintenance, it's more like brushing and flossing. It's not a root canal, it’s a two minute conversation.”

This is one podcast episode you don’t want to miss. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did!
