Kim Scott in her book “Radical Candor” has coined this very term very thoughtfully.
Applied to modern day bosses , there are two components that elaborately explains “Radical Candor” as the way forward for communication to drive high performance.
- Care Personally – Deep care for direct reports of bosses ensure flow of trust , needed for high performance teams.
- Challenge directly – The respect and relationship between boss and direct reports should encourage constructive criticism , acceptance of tough challenges in a healthy manner without any ill will.For this again the environment should be one involving high amount of trust.
Easier said than done though..
