Bring radical candor to your company

We work with companies of all sizes across a range of industries helping managers and teams around the world create a culture of guidance,
 achieve their fullest potential and drive results collaboratively.

Keynotes: The talk

A 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: four powerful phrases to help your team improve their feedback and create a culture of guidance based on caring personally and challenging directly.

The Talk scales up for audiences of over 1,000 and is available remotely as well as in person. For small groups, The Talk scales down to an intimate, fun and interactive discussion.

In-Person Workshops

Our immersive workshops show you how to put Radical Candor into practice by teaching you to solicit and receive feedback while both Caring Personally and Challenging Directly.

Through storytelling, you’ll be introduced to the core concepts and a shared vocabulary. We’ll spend time answering questions, clarifying key points and offering tips and techniques to show your team how Radical Candor can become a key part of success at work.

Then we dive into real-life scenarios, providing opportunities to practice Radical Candor in a safe and supportive environment. The goal is for your team to head back to work with a clear understanding of how they can put Radical Candor into action. You also can book an Improvising Radical Candor live event, an entertaining learning program in partnership with Second City Works.
