Legendary CEO Jack Welch of General Electric said Yes.
He simply meant that – to get the most out of your team – sometimes you need to praise & compliment; other times, you need to give the tough love.
In my experience, he’s right.
But how to do it? Easier said than done.
That’s why I was psyched to interview Kim Scott, author of the bestseller ‘Radical Candor’ She’s not just writing on theory – she’s lived it.
Kim led AdSense & YouTube Sales and Operations at Google, and then joined Apple to develop & teach a leadership seminar. Plus she’s been a CEO coach at Dropbox & Twitter.
‘Radical Candor: Be a Kickass Boss without Losing your Humanity’ is a bestseller on both New York Times & Wall Street Journal.
In the book – and in this 20-minute conversation – she gives practical advice for how to care about your people, yet at the same time challenge them directly.
No more of that backstabbing, passive aggressive, bossy pants stuff. Master this skill & you’ll be amazed by the results.
