A Great "Read": Radical Candor Podcast
In the past year, I've found that I am in search of maximizing my time in the car (I spend a great deal of time traveling between schools and meetings). If you commute to work, perhaps you feel the same. More and more, I've been seeking out new podcasts.
Today, I stumbled upon a new one: Radical Candor. If you manage others, it's a must listen. The first episode is all about the concept of "Radical Candor", the title of the podcast and the subject of a book coming out soon (I'll be picking this one up!), essentially a balance between kindness and constructive criticism, between relationship building and directed conversations that prompt growth and change. The episode ran only about 20 minutes, and challenged managers to do three things. Listen to find out what they are. I'm going to try these this week. Check it out, let me know what you think, and look for new episodes each Tuesday.
