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.  Russ 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.
