Join Kim for an Interactive Radical Candor Bootcamp Featuring “The Feedback Loop” Comedy Series
Tired of being talked at during pre-recorded webinars? Come laugh with us, live! Join Radical Candor author Kim Scott for a laugh-and-learn program to acquire the skills you need to practice Radical Candor like a boss, even if you aren’t one (and even if you haven’t read the book).
For the first time, Kim is teaching a live, six-week virtual course featuring our comedy-based interactive learning program, The Feedback Loop, to help you fix past and present feedback fails … and avoid future frustrations.
Don’t miss this opportunity to join Kim for an intimate experience that allows you to practice the principles of Radical Candor in real time with real people.
Learn to Leverage Life’s Unscripted Feedback Conversations
Packed with irreverent humor — think The Office meets Groundhog Day — our workplace comedy series and accompanying learning program, developed with Second City Works, brings Radical Candor’s proven feedback framework to life in a way that’s fun, fresh and effective.
Each week, Kim will lead you through The Feedback Loop as you follow the adventures of a couple of managers whose feedback fails are costly … but hilarious (watch the trailer below).
Then, through the lens of these characters, she’ll help you identify your feedback fails and teach you how to apply the principles of Radical Candor to your everyday life so you can free yourself from your own feedback loop.
The best part? You’ll get the chance to practice your skills in real time with real people as well as the opportunity to deepen your learning in between sessions. Yes, there will be some homework, but don’t worry, it’s fun!

Frequently Asked Questions
What if the course is full? How do I get on a waitlist?
Will there be breakout groups? Do I have to be on video?
We have capped attendance at 200 participants to allow for small breakout groups during each session. Because you will be interacting with other people during real time, we do strongly recommend you turn your video on during the breakout groups.
While we won’t be in the same room, we will be in the same Zoom. For many/most of us, video is the most effective channel we have to practice Radical Candor right now. What’s more, for those who can still meet in person, it is hard to pick up on facial expressions while social distancing/wearing masks.
Without video, the others in your group won’t be able to read your non-verbal cues.Share
Will this be recorded? What if I miss a session?
Yes, each session will be recorded and posted in The Feedback Loop Intensive Community on Slack; you’ll receive an email invitation to join at the beginning of the course. If you miss a week, you can catch up any time before the next session.
The small-group breakout sessions will not be recorded. What is said in your breakout sessions stays in your breakout session.Share
I’ve read “Radical Candor” and/or seen “The Feedback Loop.” Is this course right for me?
That depends. If you’ve read Radical Candor but have not seen The Feedback Loop, you can definitely benefit from this course. The Feedback Loop brings the principles of Radical Candor to life through characters at a fictional company (think Groundhog Day meets The Office).
Because Radical Candor is a simple concept that’s not always easy to understand, seeing the concepts play out in the form of a TV show is helpful. In addition, you’ll get live instruction from Kim Scott and the opportunity to practice within small groups.
If you have seen The Feedback Loop, you might still enjoy this course because Kim will walk you through it live and you can connect with a cohort of other people who are looking to sharpen their feedback skills.
Remember, Radical Candor is not something you do once and check the box as complete. In order to be effective, you need to practice. A lot.
If you’re looking to strengthen your ability to give and receive feedback and improve your relationships at work, this course provides a unique opportunity to practice with real people in real time over a six-week period.
You will also be connected with a group of folks you can stay in touch with for continued practice long after the course is over.Share
How much time do I need to spend on this each week?
Each session is 60 minutes and there will be a small amount of homework assigned each week. How much time you spend practicing your Radical Candor skills is up to you.
If you just attend the sessions and complete the assignments, you’ll spend about two hours a week for six weeks. However, if you want to deepen your practice you can interact with others in the community who want to do the same and spend as much time as you want.Share
