´Reading Radical Candor will help you build, lead, and inspire teams to do the best work of their lives.´ Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In. If you don´t have anything nice to say then don´t say anything at all . . . right? While this advice may work for home life, as Kim Scott has seen first hand, it is a disaster when adopted by managers in the work place. Scott earned her stripes as a highly successful manager at Google before moving to Apple where she developed a class on optimal management. Radical Candor draws directly on her experiences at these cutting edge companies to reveal a new approach to effective management that delivers huge success by inspiring teams to work better together by embracing fierce conversations. Radical Candor is the sweet spot between managers who are obnoxiously aggressive on the one side and ruinously empathetic on the other. It is about providing guidance, which involves a mix of praise as well as criticism - delivered to produce better results and help your employees develop their skills and increase success. Great bosses have a strong relationship with their employees, and Scott has identified three simple principles for building better relationships with your employees: make it personal, get stuff done, and understand why it matters. Radical Candor offers a guide to those bewildered or exhausted by management, written for bosses and those who manage bosses. Drawing on years of first-hand experience, and distilled clearly to give practical advice to the reader, Radical Candor shows you how to be successful while retaining your integrity and humanity. Radical Candor is the perfect handbook for those who are looking to find meaning in their job and create an environment where people love both their work and their colleagues, and are motivated to strive to ever greater success.
A revised edition of Kim Scott´s perennial bestseller that created a cultural revolution and took workplaces worldwide by storm. Radical Candor is back with an all new foreword, afterword, FAQ, and radically candid performance review. From the time we learn to speak, we´re told that if you don´t have anything nice to say, don´t say anything at all. When you become a manager, it´s your job to say it-and your obligation. Author Kim Scott was an executive at Google and then Apple, where she worked with a team to develop a class on how to be a good boss. What emerged was her vital new approach to effective management, Radical Candor. Radical Candor is a simple idea: to be a good boss, you have to Care Personally at the same time that you Challenge Directly. When you challenge without caring it´s obnoxious aggression; when you care without challenging it´s ruinous empathy. When you do neither it´s manipulative insincerity. This simple framework can help you build better relationships at work, and fulfill your three key responsibilities as a leader: creating a culture of feedback, building a cohesive team, and achieving results you´re all proud of. Radical Candor offers a guide to those bewildered or exhausted by management, for bosses and those who manage bosses. Taken from the author´s experience and giving actionable lessons to the reader, it shows managers how to be successful while retaining their humanity, finding meaning in their job, and creating an environment where people love both their work and their colleagues.
