Author of Radical Candor: Be a Kickass Boss without Losing Your Humanity


Bad bosses make people miserable. They also kill innovation, stifle growth, increase costs, and create instability. Well-meaning people become bad bosses without even realizing it. Radical Candor is the ability to show you Care Personally at the same time that you Challenge Directly.

Kim Malone Scott describes how this simple idea can help you give and receive feedback, do the best work of your life, and build a better relationship with each person on your team.
