Co-Founder, Candor Inc.

Bad bosses make people miserable. They also kill innovation, stifle growth, increase costs, and create instability. Well-meaning people become bad bosses without even realizing it. Radical Candor--Caring Personally while Challenging Directly--will help you be a great boss without losing your humanity.

 
Radical Candor

To be a great boss and create high-performing, happy teams, the single most important thing you can do is focus on feedback: giving it, receiving it, and encouraging it. Radical Candor is a simple framework developed to help you build a culture of great feedback.

Radical Candor is the ability to give feedback in a way that challenges people directly and shows you care about them personally. It will help you and all the people you work with do the best work of your careers and build stronger working relationships. Radical Candor really just means, “say what you think.” But people rarely do this. Why is it so rare that such a simple thing feels radical?

Radical Candor gives your organization concepts, vocabulary, and tactics you can put into practice immediately.
