What is Radical Candor

A compass for candid conversations

The highest performing teams value feedback and ensure it is frequent, candid, and flows up, down, and sideways.

Use Radical Candor to help guide your feedback to a better place by making sure your criticism and your praise are Kind, Clear, Specific and Sincere.

  • Get it

    Asking for feedback is the best way to create an environment of trust and psychological safety.

  • Give it

    Don’t let your discomfort stop you from sharing what’s working and what could be better.

  • Gauge it

    Pay attention to the other person’s reaction. Respond accordingly.

In-person and asynchronous feedback coaching courses can be booked through the Radical Candor website.
