Kim Scott – Radical Candor: Fully Revised & Updated Edition


Featuring a new preface, afterword, and radically candid performance review bonus chapter, the fully revised and updated edition of Radical Candor is packed with even more guidance to help you improve your relationships at work.

Radical Candor has been embraced around the world by leaders of every stripe at companies of all sizes. Now a cultural touchstone, the concept has come to be applied to a wide range of human relationships.

The idea is simple: You don’t have to choose between being a pushover and a jerk. Using Radical Candor – avoiding the perils of Obnoxious Aggression, Manipulative Insincerity, and Ruinous Empathy – you can be kind and clear at the same time.

Kim Scott was a highly successful leader at Google before decamping to Apple, where she developed and taught a management class. Since the original publication of Radical Candor in 2017, Scott has earned international fame with her vital approach to effective leadership and co-founded the Radical Candor executive education company, which helps companies put the book’s philosophy into practice.

Radical Candor is about caring personally and challenging directly, about soliciting criticism to improve your leadership and also providing guidance that helps others grow. It focuses on praise but doesn’t shy away from criticism – to help you love your work and the people you work with.

Radically Candid relationships with team members enable bosses to fulfill their three core responsibilities:

Create a culture of Compassionate Candor

Build a cohesive team

Achieve results collaboratively

Required listening for the most successful organizations, Radical Candor has raised the bar for management practices worldwide.

The beginning was a little off-putting because the author was just complaining about ignorant/ill reception or demonstration of the intent of her book. For those of us that hadnt read the first one, it felt like an awkward place to start.

Once the book began outright, it held a lot of great information. I suppose I can understand how some wouldnt catch on, but I felt it was very articulate and that its practicable guidance for anyone…even for those just working alone on themselves.
