In-Person Keynotes + Workshops
Keynote: The talk
Radical Candor author Kim Scott, or a trained Candor Coach, will introduce key Radical Candor concepts, providing tips and tactics to get you started on your Radical Candor journey.
Through relatable personal stories, we provide your team with a framework and a shared vocabulary to help them improve their feedback and create a culture of guidance based on the key Radical Candor principles: Caring Personally and Challenging Directly. The Talk scales up for audiences of over 1,000, and scales down for smaller groups to an intimate, fun and interactive discussion.
Keynote: Improvising Radical Candor
Developed in partnership with Second City Works, this is anything but a traditional ‘talk-at-you’ keynote! This live, performative, skill-development program to foster critical communication skills is fueled by the Radical Candor feedback framework, experiential learning and improvised performances from The Second City improv actors. You’ll learn what Radical Candor is (and isn’t) via humorous, improvised scenes tailored to the group.
This laugh-and-learn keynote teaches you how to put Radical Candor into action when the stakes are highest, using low-stakes, experiential learning. (This can be bundled with The Feedback Loop workplace comedy series.)
Our immersive workshops show you how to put Radical Candor into practice by teaching you to successfully solicit, give and receive feedback using the Radical Candor principles: Caring Personally and Challenging Directly.
Through storytelling, you’ll be introduced to the core concepts and a shared vocabulary as well as tips and techniques that demonstrate for your team how Radical Candor can become an integral part of their success at work.
Then we dive into real-life scenarios, providing opportunities to practice Radical Candor in a safe and supportive environment so your team can head back to work with a clear understanding of how to put Radical Candor into action.

The Feedback Loop: A Workplace Comedy Series
Improvising Radical Candor, a partnership between Radical Candor and Second City Works, introduces The Feedback Loop (think Groundhog Day meets The Office), a 5-episode workplace comedy series that brings to life Radical Candor’s simple framework for navigating candid conversations.
You’ll get an hour of hilarious content about a team whose feedback fails are costing them business; improv-inspired exercises to teach everyone the skills they need to work better together; after-episode action plans you can put into practice immediately; and the option to bundle your package with an Improvising Radical Candor Keynote. The program easily scales across in-person and remote organizations so everyone can learn right where they are.
There are two ways to get The Feedback Loop:
For companies with over 250 people who want to personalize the program or deploy it via their own learning management system, we offer an enterprise license.
For individuals, teams and companies smaller than 250 people, or for larger companies looking for a plug-and-play experience, we offer individual licenses starting at $59.
Virtual Keynotes + Workshops
The Radical Candor live event offerings are also available virtually. Virtual Keynotes and Workshops are an ideal option for remote teams or for organizations that are limiting travel. Virtual Keynotes can accommodate groups of any size while virtual Workshops can accommodate up to 30 people. Custom programs are available upon request.
