A revised edition of Kim Scott's perennial bestseller that created a cultural revolution and took workplaces worldwide by storm.

Radical Candor is back with an all new foreword, afterword, FAQ, and radically candid performance review.

From the time we learn to speak, weíre told that if you donít have anything nice to say, donít say anything at all. When you become a manager, itís your job to say itóand your obligation.

Author Kim Scott was an executive at Google and then Apple, where she worked with a team to develop a class on how to be a good boss. What emerged was her vital new approach to effective management, Radical Candor.

Radical Candor is a simple idea: to be a good boss, you have to Care Personally at the same time that you Challenge Directly. When you challenge without caring itís obnoxious aggression; when you care without challenging itís ruinous empathy. When you do neither itís manipulative insincerity.

This simple framework can help you build better relationships at work, and fulfill your three key responsibilities as a leader: creating a culture of feedback, building a cohesive team, and achieving results youíre all proud of.

Radical Candor offers a guide to those bewildered or exhausted by management, for bosses and those who manage bosses. Taken from the authorís experience and giving actionable lessons to the reader, it shows managers how to be successful while retaining their humanity, finding meaning in their job, and creating an environment where people love both their work and their colleagues.
