Radical Candor: How to be a kickass boss without losing your humanity or crushing your team

Candor, Inc has developed a framework called Radical Candor that helps make giving impromptu feedback feel more natural. Giving  feedback is deeply uncomfortable for most people, but a profoundly important part of learning to be a good leader. Criticizing others can feel brutal, and praising them can feel patronizing. Giving feedback is hard, but it’s just the beginning. It’s equally as important to get feedback (especially criticism) from others, and encourage it between them.  Kim will explain the Radical Candor framework, and describe how you can use to improve your impromptu feedback, solicit it from others, and encourage it between the people you work most closely with.

PART ONE
Our live workshop begins with storytelling around Kim Scott’s first-hand experience with this
dilemma. Then we lay out the framework of Radical Candor and give our improvisational actors/
facilitators the chance to bring that framework to life on stage for the workshop attendees. This
allows us to use the power of humor to point out all the ways we fail and succeed at communication.

PART TWO
Part Two of the workshop involves a series of interactive exercises that Second City Works has
customized in collaboration with Kim and her Radical Candor team. Attendees will have a chance
to try on the various roles of “The Disrespecter,” “The Disrespected” and “The Observer.”
OUR EXERCISES LIST INCLUDES:
• PRACTICING INTERRUPTION
• MODELING EXCLUSION AND INVISIBILIZING
• TRIGGERING WORDS
• MANSPLAINING AND HE-PEAT
• UNCONSCIOUS BIAS

PART THREE
Finally, the workshop allows larger groups to come together, share their own stories and apply the
lessons they’ve learned to find new ways to more effectively conduct gender conversations.
