Radical Candor Feedback
In this episode, Hoots reviews another way to develop capabilities! Through radical candor feedback, teams can deliver feedback that is honest, kind, clear, and concise. Radical Candor feedback comes from a place of caring personally about a human being and challenging that human being directly. In this episode, Hoots reviews one of his favorite books called Radical Candor: How to be a kick ass boss by Kim Scott. Hoots raves about this book and her blog!
Feedback can be both hard to give and hard to receive. From birth, we have been told ‘if we don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all.’ This is total Bullshido and needs to be rethought. If we don’t have something nice to say, ask yourself if it is constructive and if you care personally about the person that you are referring to, if both answers are yes then share the feedback! The other comment we’ve been taught our entire life is to ‘be professional.’ Somehow, that means leaving your feelings at home and don’t care about people. This also couldn’t be further from the truth.
Hoots suggests analyzing your relationships to help yourself understand where you are from a feedback standpoint for those who mean the most to you. We have to change our views on feedback to make sure that feedback is actionable. That is good feedback that helps us to learn and adjust moving forward! That is being lean! That is what being a lean builder is all about!
