Being new to leadership can lead to a lot of questions about how to approach your new direct reports. Should you focus on being liked to get the best out of them or are bottom line results all that matter? According to author Kim Scott, the answer lies somewhere in the middle. Radical candor addresses these questions and more. The tagline for the book, ‘how to get what you want by saying what you mean’ sums it up. Leadership is not a zero sum game where you are either well liked or completely results driven at the expense of team moral. It is about being clear in your expectations while genuinely caring about the wellbeing of your team. Use this action log to take these ideas from the book and go out into the world to deliberately practice.
