3 Fun Ways to Learn Radical Candor and Actually Retain the Knowledge

Maybe you’ve heard folks talking about Radical Candor at work or on social media and you’ve been wondering what this whole kind-clear-specific-sincere feedback thing is all about. Are there Radical Candor feedback-training e-learning courses and videos to get up to speed?

Of course, we want you to read the Radical Candor book! And, we also understand spending hours reading and processing information can be difficult. Many people I know are listening to more books than they’re reading these days or are choosing to learn from short-form video content.

According to a 2019 study published in the journal Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience, 65% of the population learns through visual reinforcements, such as videos.

What’s more, you’re more likely to retain information from bite-sized e-learning courses than you are from traditional classroom learning.

We get it. That’s why we have three short, easy and fun visual ways for you to learn the Radical Candor principles at your own pace.

Get all three, or choose the Radical Candor e-learning option that’s best for you!

1. The Feedback Loop

 

A partnership between Radical Candor and Second City Works, The Feedback Loop (think Groundhog Day meets The Office) is a digital workplace comedy series that follows a pair of well-intentioned, but flawed leaders who realize the only way to stop repeating the same terrible work day is to act less like Michael Scott and more like Kim Scott by applying the principles of Radical Candor.

Binge-worthy, not cringe-worthy, this Netflix-style Radical Candor course includes:

  • An hour of hilarious content about a team whose feedback fails are costing them business, delivered over 5 episodes.
  • Improv-inspired exercises to teach you the skills you need to think more quickly on your feet and work more effectively with others.
  • Quizzes and action plans you can put into practice immediately.

Giving and receiving feedback is crucial to your success, but we know it can be uncomfortable. So put on your PJs, get comfy on your couch, and Let’s Get Radical! (Sorry, popcorn not included.)

A year-long license to watch the Radical Candor e-learning course and use the materials is only $149. Get 10% off when you use the code FEEDBACK at checkout. We hope you’ll have just as much watching The Feedback Loop as we did making it!

“We’re thrilled to partner with Second City Works to use improv and help people practice the art and science of Radical Candor in a way that’s entertaining and educational,” says Radical Candor author and co-founder Kim Scott.

“When Radical Candor is put into practice, communication flows, resentments that have festered come to the surface and get resolved, and people begin to love their work and the people they work with.”
