Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week I have the pleasure of chatting with the ever-candid, Kim Scott. Kim is the author of three novels, and the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller “Radical Candor: Be A Kickass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity.” Previously, Kim was the Co-founder and CEO of Juice Software, a collaboration startup. She led ad sense, YouTube, and double-click online sales and operations at Google, before she joined Apple to develop and teach a leadership seminar. She also has been a CEO coach at Dropbox, Qualtrics, Twitter, and several other tech companies. She received her MBA from Harvard and her B.A. from Princeton University.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… anyone who is open to becoming more self-aware, interested in learning how to give and receive candid and effective feedback.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Be able to show you that you care for those around you while also challenging them to be better. Candid, effective feedback is important, indispensable, and harder to come by than you might think. When you do get it, it’s in your best interest to embrace it, apply it, and continue to encourage it. Kim shares her best advice on how you can be a better giver of this valuable feedback (both positive and negative), as well as a better receiver of it.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Kim believes, as do I, that giving feedback is not mean, if it’s clear. Her personal anecdotes were illustrative, especially her own career re-focus with Sheryl Sandberg. I also love that she makes a point to remind us how important it is to make sure you take a moment in the day to thank somebody and recognize what they do and all that they bring to work, your business, or your life, every day.
