Scott earned her stripes as a highly successful manager at Google before moving to Apple, where she developed a class on optimal management. Radical Candor draws directly on her experiences at these cutting-edge companies to reveal a new approach to effective management that delivers huge success by inspiring teams to work better together by embracing fierce conversations.
Radical Candor is the sweet spot between managers who are obnoxiously aggressive on the one side and ruinously empathetic on the other. It is about providing guidance, which involves a mix of praise as well as criticism - delivered to produce better results and help employees develop their skills and boundaries of success.
Great bosses have strong relationships with their employees, and Scott has identified three simple principles for building better relationships with your employees: make it personal, get stuff done, and understand why it matters.
Radical Candor offers a guide to those bewildered or exhausted by management, written for bosses and those who manage bosses. Drawing on years of firsthand experience, and distilled clearly to give actionable lessons to the listener, Radical Candor shows how to be successful while retaining your integrity and humanity. Radical Candor is the perfect handbook for those who are looking to find meaning in their job and create an environment where people both love their work and their colleagues and are motivated to strive to ever greater success.

Very helpful to reflect on own leadership and has actionable content too
Recommend for all managers that are keen to get the best out of their teams. There is a lot of content but you will find something in each chapter that will resonate and make you reflect on your own managerial habits. It’s easy to follow with a lot of example stories coming from her personal experience at Google and Apple. Will re-listen some chapters and actually considering to buy the hard copy too so I can browse through it from time to time - very keen to start implementing some of her recommendations. This book got me more excited to be a manager and more confident I, too, am able to get the best out of my team.
