Why is feedback between a supervisor and employee often strained? Is there a simple approach? Kim Scott will discuss straightforward strategies contained in her best-seller “Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity” during her Ocean County Library Virtual Author Talk, 2 PM Wednesday, February 28.
“Radical Candor” and her 2021 book “Just Work” are available at the Ocean County Library. Kim’s novels include “Virtual Love,” “The Househusband” and “The Measurement Problem.”
The California-based entrepreneur and writer will explain her Radical Candor approach to feedback that aims to help managers and workers cultivate an atmosphere of compassionate candor, build a cohesive team, and achieve results through collaboration.
She’ll provide practical tips for soliciting criticism, issuing critiques, and gauging the effect of job-related dialogue. She’ll suggest ways to avoid couching criticisms in terms that suggest bias, prejudice, and bullying.
Prior to becoming a New York Times best-selling author, Kim was a CEO coach for digital firms including Twitter and Dropbox, worked on AdSense, DoubleClick and YouTube teams for Google, and had a seat on the faculty of Apple University. Her Radical Candor LLC firm and Radical Respect workshops share the goal of workplace harmony.
