Radical Candor

Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity

Kim Scott


I thought that I would hate this book based on the title. I was wrong.

The critical idea is that you are doing people a service by having the difficult (radically candid) conversations with them. You’re not being a jerk. Most of us fall back to “ruinous empathy” and that is, in fact, ruinous for both parties.
