The Feedback Loop
Online Learning Program
Improvising Radical Candor, a partnership between Radical Candor and Second City Works, introduces The Feedback Loop (think Groundhog Day meets The Office). Featured in The Economist, this 5-episode workplace comedy series (and accompanying learning materials) bring to life Radical Candor’s simple framework for navigating candid conversations.
If you’re like most people, you probably don’t receive the kind of feedback you need to keep growing on the job. And, sorry to say, you’re probably not giving the kind of feedback that will most help you build the kind of relationships you really need to succeed.
The Feedback Loop is a digital laugh-and-learn solution that’s nothing short of hilarious. The best part — it’s only $59 for an individual 12-month license for this self-paced e-course. (Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for bulk-pricing)
You’ll get an hour of hilarious content about a team whose feedback fails are costing them business; improv-inspired exercises to teach you the skills they need to work better with others; quick quizzes to test your knowledge; the ability to revisit episodes and exercises as much as you want for an entire year; and commenting functionality to connect and engage with others in the Improvising Radical Candor community.
