    Context Matters — Share Your Radical Candor Stories

    On this week's episode of the Radical Candor podcast, Amy and Jason discuss why it's so important to share your stories with your team. Show some vulnerability. Your personal stories will explain, better than any management theory, what you really mean and show why you really mean it. That’s why Kim tells all those personal stories in Radical Candor. Your stories will mean a lot more to your team than other people’s stories do because they mean something to you. So, what makes a good story, and what's appropriate to share? Amy and Jason break it down. See the transcript and show notes: https://www.radicalcandor.com/podcast/share-your-radical-candor-stories/

    Navigating Emotional Reactions at Work

    Navigating Emotional Reactions at Work

    Whether you’re the one getting emotional or you’re giving someone feedback and they react with unexpected emotion, it’s important to recognize that while you can’t control or manage other people’s emotions, you can manage your emotional reactions at work. On the final episode of season 2 of the Radical Candor podcast, Kim, Amy and Jason talk about how to navigate emotional reactions at work. The worst thing you can do is ignore emotional reactions. Emotions like anger, sadness and fear are part of the human condition, and people shouldn’t have to leave their humanity at home when they come to work.

    Manipulative Insincerity, Talking ABOUT People Instead of TO Them

    Manipulative Insincerity, Talking ABOUT People Instead of TO Them

    Manipulative Insincerity is what happens when you neither Care Personally nor Challenge Directly. It’s praise that is non-specific and insincere, or criticism that is neither clear nor kind. It’s the kind of backstabbing, political, passive aggressive behavior that might be fun to tell stories about but makes for a toxic workplace, ruining relationships and ruining work.

Drastically changed the way I look at leadership

I’ve always been a person who generally is frustrated with my boss and have always strived to avoid those pitfalls when I too became a manager. These episodes are so specific in the thing so that I can do to create a better environment for my employees. The first episode was assigned to me for my development upon building to a promotion and I decided to listen to the whole series to better my leadership and relationships at work. My boss has also listened to a few episodes and we are reading the book together. I really enjoy the concrete tips at the end of each episode and the stories the hosts tell that show that they’ve also made these mistakes and are sharing from experience on how to avoid them in the future. They are real and relatable and do not skirt around tough topics. Very grateful that this resource exists for manager everywhere!
