Use Candor to Improve Performance (TD2359)

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Location: Wine-Price Building


The only way a person can improve is noticing or being told what needs changed. Yet we struggle to tell someone openly and honestly what to fix because it might sound critical and harsh. We need candor but speaking with candor takes practice that can be helped by Kim Scott’s concept of Radical Candor. In this workshop we will see her model for guidance, use the radical candor matrix of caring personally and challenging directly to understand 4 types of feedback, and talk about the needs of superstar and rock-star employees since both need care for a team to succeed. 

In this workshop participants will:

  • Become familiar with the four quadrants of radical candor
  • Review the four things to do to have a team of radical candor
  • Identify strategies to lead superstars and rock-stars thoughtfully
  • Develop a personal plan of action for candor

Facilitated by: Gail Napora, Professional Development Specialist, Talent Development
