Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss
Without Losing Your Humanity
by Kim Scott
There isn’t a week that goes by that management trainers aren’t asked to provide leadership training for corporate managers. After rendering a talent assessment the sad truth reveals itself, out of the ten identified managers, there’s only one - or two at best - real managers in the group. The rest were barely good leads. As they flail in their roles, we puzzle why? They were such outstanding individual contributors to their unit. Sadly, we are not assessing our high potential employees for the leadership abilities, we are promoting good individual contributors and wondering why they can’t manage. Five-star New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller Radical Candor addresses, with extraordinary insight, why we continue to fail when selecting candidates for leadership roles. Further, as we are molding our teams, we grapple with how to be candid without tearing our staff’s face off, in the end we get mush management. Explore with the book-club why Kim Scott of Google and Apple fame became a straight speaker and a fabulous leader as she outlines her practical steps for you.
