Description

The old adage is ingrained in us that if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all. While this advice may work for home life, as Kim Scott has seen firsthand, it is a disaster when adopted by managers in the workplace.

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 employees develop their skills and boundaries of success.

Great bosses have strong relationships 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 firsthand experience, and distilled clearly to give actionable lessons to the listener, Radical Candor shows 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 both love their work and their colleagues and are motivated to strive to ever greater success.

good book. bad narration

Good advice with interesting anecdotes as well.. Unfortunately the narration is a problem - the editors were clearly not radically candid with the author about her narration skills.

A MUST READ for every leader and anyone being lead

Loved it from beginning to end. Some of the principles and concepts felt a bit force fed as I got to the end, but I guess it's what's required when one is trying to ensure such transformative acts are turned into actual organisational change.

Lots of sensible advice. Good to read a book that re-enforces the real benefits of being a caring, "human" boss.

A practical guide to create high performing healthy work cultures

really like this book as it focuses on helping people grow through good feedback in all directions. Implementing a radical candor culture will help you achieve a psychologically safe work environment which according to the Aristotle project at google is the single common feature of highly effective teams. It is filled with easy to relate stories which are not simple anecdotal entertainment but illustrate perfectly well the operating principles. It also makes a good use of many simple techniques developed throughout the Silicon Valley putting them together in an excellently orchestrates fashion.

When reading the book I found for the first time an external support to my pledges against the hype on identifying high potentials in organizations and instead understanding the phenomenon as growth trajectories. It still has a slight bias towards younger people which I believe is not always true. Some people need to gain experience in many fields until they can put all these experiences together and move into a steep growth trajectory.

I highly recommend this book specially to Managers and HR professionals that struggle to find their way into creating highly performing cultures.

The only minus would be the pitch of the narrator that can be at times a bit annoying.

Very Interesting. A bit too long

Amazing business book on how to be a manager. Management 101 you could say. It talks about the basics and core practices of being a good manager.

My only grief is that it felt too long compared to other books. Perhaps it was how stories were mixed with theory that it felt longer than it was.

Young Bosses Should Read This

Packed with a number of useful experiences to draw off of and learn from. It's helped me gain a better understanding of the different nuances and behaviours I observe in the workplace on a daily basis. It's taught me a valuable lesson about when to speak up, and when to let go. A very welcome addition to my collection, and to my list of recommendations.
