About This Resource

This session was part of our 2024 REDF Community Retreat in Los Angeles, CA.

Session Description

Whether you are managing direct reports, overseeing a project team, or collaborating across departments communications can sometimes be tricky, spicy, or totally stalling out. As leaders, we have to figure out how to navigate these challenges to achieve results while also going beyond not causing harm to strengthening morale and staff wellbeing. Sometimes this is a high bar to clear, especially when our own stress is high. 

In this session, the REDF Accelerator team will share a core, and evergreen, section of their curriculum — Radical Candor. Attendees in this workshop will leave with an understanding of and the chance to practice how it feels to combine two approaches: caring about the person and challenging issues directly, the ingredients for effective Radical Candor.

Session Materials

The session materials for our workshop are designed to enhance your learning experience and support practical application. These materials include the comprehensive Power Point deck used during the workshop, providing you with all the key insights and information covered. Plus, we’ve got worksheets and resources for you to try out the concepts and strategies on your own or with your team. These resources are designed to help you understand and use what you’ve learned in your own day-to-day work.
