09:30-17:30 // Venue TBC

Interpersonal relationships and healthy team dynamics are at the centre of the success of every engineering team. But what happens when something goes wrong? Difficult conversations need to happen, but if there isn’t a foundation of trust or if the conversation’s mishandled, then they can sometimes turn sour. It’s these situations that need Radical Candor, the ability to care personally and at the same time challenge someone directly.

Throughout the day, you’ll learn:

  • The core concepts of Radical Candor and why it’s important
  • How to lay the foundations of trust to enable open communication
  • To create a shared language for feedback and how to teach this to your team
  • How to place honest, practical feedback at the centre of your communication
  • Strategies for giving, receiving and observing feedback
  • Structures to ensure each team member achieves their fullest potential
  • The ability to work within your team to drive results collaboratively

During the day, you’ll participate in interactive exercises that will allow you to convert the day’s learnings into practical actions. You’ll leave the day with new knowledge, resources, the ability to immediately implement the newfound skills that you’ve acquired.
