Radical Candor has been embraced around the world by leaders of every stripe at companies of all sizes. Now a cultural touchstone, the concept has come to be applied to a wide range of human relationships.
The idea is simple: You don't have to choose between being a pushover and a jerk. Using Radical Candor—avoiding the perils of Obnoxious Aggression, Manipulative Insincerity, and Ruinous Empathy—you can be kind and clear at the same time.
Kim Scott was a highly successful leader at Google before decamping to Apple, where she developed and taught a management class. Since the original publication of Radical Candor in 2017, Scott has earned international fame with her vital approach to effective leadership and co-founded the Radical Candor executive education company, which helps companies put the book's philosophy into practice.
Radical Candor is about caring personally and challenging directly, about soliciting criticism to improve your leadership and also providing guidance that helps others grow. It focuses on praise but doesn't shy away from criticism—to help you love your work and the people you work with.
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
Required reading for the most successful organizations, Radical Candor has raised the bar for management practices worldwide.

Radical Candor is more than just a new leadership model, it pins down basic behaviours and skills to cultivate and the creation of work environments that not only feel right but work right - for the benefit of all concerned. I wish I had been introduced to these learnings early on in my mgmt. training - they would have made a critical difference not only in my own experience but the flow/success of others who were also impacted by my influence.
This is not just going to be a "one read bestseller" for me - it's not just a title that will continue to influence and elevate the success of workplace environment for years to come; it's an essential framework that can masterfully be applied to all areas of your life so that it can thrive!
Here is the core concept:
Bosses guide a team to achieve results. Focus on building relationships with your direct reports, which will affect your team's culture and determine the quality of everything that follows. Two dimensions for developing trust: care personally and challenge directly. Caring personally is about acknowledging we are all people with lives and aspirations beyond our shared work and finding time to get to know each other on a human level. Challenging others and encouraging them to challenge you shows that you care about what is and is not going well, and that you're committed to fixing mistakes that you or others have made. These strategies need to adapt to cultural differences between individuals, teams, companies, and countries.
One of my favourite takeaways is how Kim clarifies that we should be managing growth rather than potential. Not everyone is on a steep growth curve and that's perfectly OK. In fact, as I was reading this section of the book, I was prompted to email a former employee of mine. She was the definition of a Rock Star in Kim's parlance - as stable as the Rock of Gibraltar. Radical Candor helped me appreciate her even more than I did while we worked together.
Thank you Kim. I've long known that management by diktat needs to die. You helped me develop a better understanding of how to help kill it!

It lives up to its name; it is a candid look at the act of management and it proposes a useful model, peppered with useful and funny stories from the author's experiences.
I consider this book at must-read for any people manager (especially in IT). By no means sufficient, it succeeds in proposing a way of thinking at management that may bring surprising positive results.
Feedback is such a simple thing, but so hard for individuals and teams to get right without conscious practice. Radical Candor is an accessible and compelling companion for anyone trying to improve this aspect of their work.
I highlighted many passages and shared them with colleagues as I read this book - a sign that reading it was time well-spent.
