the fundamentals of leading others: how to give (and receive)
feedback, how to make smart decisions, how to keep moving forward,
and much more. If you manage people - whether it be 1 person or a
1,000 - you need Radical Candor. Now.

I raced through Radical Candor - it's thrilling to learn a framework that shows how to be both a better boss and a better colleague. Radical Candor is packed with illuminating truths, insightful advice, and practical suggestions, all illustrated with engaging (and often funny) stories from Kim Scott's own experiences at places like Apple, Google, and various start-ups. Indispensable.
