Some #RadiCandy From Past Workshop Participants
In this time of great anxiety of the unknown due to COVID-19, the role of a manager becomes even more individualized and compassionately candid to meet the constantly changing lives of employees and team members. This course could not have come at a better time when I needed to feed my brain (with the right words when offering criticism and praise) and my soul (with profiteroles and laughter).” — Course participant
“I found the course very beneficial especially during these times where our empathy tanks are running very low. It was very helpful to listen to fellow classmates … We are all human and tend to encounter the same issues across many industries and many countries.” — Course participant
Extremely valuable insights from Kim, Jason and Amy! The open, informal round-table dialogue was, to me, the most special part of the experience … The framework provided throughout the course is actionable and helpful in any context. Thanks a lot for the course!” — Teresa Carmo, course participant
Join Radical Candor for an Interactive Workshop Featuring “The Feedback Loop” Comedy Series
You’re invited to join Radical Candor CEO and Co-Founder Jason Rosoff and Chief Content Officer Amy Sandler for a 6-week laugh-and-learn workshop to acquire the feedback 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).
This introductory course uses a hilarious workplace comedy series starring Kim Scott and David Alan Grier to teach you to Care Personally and Challenge Directly. You’ll also get access to a community of feedback friendlies so you can practice in between sessions.
There are two ways to sign up:
Join Live: For $249 you’ll join us live on Zoom each week where you’ll watch The Feedback Loop series, break down the core concepts with Amy and Jason, practice your feedback skills in small-group breakouts, and get a bonus Q&A with Radical Candor author Kim Scott during one of the sessions.
Class Pass: Or, if group work isn’t your thing, you can get a view-only class pass for $99. You get the recorded session with the weekly episode and accompanying group discussion sent right to your inbox.
Learn to Leverage Life’s Unscripted Feedback Conversations
Packed with irreverent humor — think The Office meets Groundhog Day — our workplace comedy series, developed with Second City Works, and accompanying learning program, brings Radical Candor’s proven feedback framework to life in a way that’s fun, fresh and effective.
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?
In order to preserve the integrity of small group breakout rooms, live attendance is capped at 200. If you’d like to be notified if a spot opens up for this course, or you’d like to be the first to know about dates for our other 2021 Radical Candor 101, add your name to the list. There is an unlimited number of spots for the $99 view-only class pass.Share
Will there be breakout groups? Do I have to be on video?
We have capped attendance at 200 live 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 Radical Candor 101 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 Radical Candor experts and the opportunity to practice within small groups.
If you have seen The Feedback Loop, you might still enjoy this course because the Radical Candor team 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 90 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 2-2.5 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
