Why is feedback so difficult, and how can we make it easier? You don't have to choose between being a pushover and a jerk. Kim Scott, New York Times bestselling author, will explain the Radical Candor feedback framework and how you can practice it today.

Why is feedback so difficult, and how can we make it easier? The idea is simple: You don't have to choose between being a pushover and a jerk. Kim Scott, New York Times bestselling author of Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity, will explain the Radical Candor feedback framework and how you can practice it today. She'll offer practical, tactical tips for how to solicit criticism, give praise and criticism, gauge how what you're saying is landing, and build a culture of Radical Candor. She'll also discuss ensuring that bias, prejudice, and bullying don't masquerade as feedback. Radically Candid relationships with team members enable bosses to fulfill their three core responsibilities:

  1. Create a culture of Compassionate Candor
  2. Build a cohesive team
  3. Achieve results collaboratively
