A new management philosophy called radical candor is taking over communication styles in the modern workplace.
In case you are wondering, radical candor is not brutal honesty. It’s more to do with clear and direct communication that can be challenging but is always beneficial.
The phrase seems to hint at speaking your mind and being blunt to the point of hurting others. Feel free to express your opinions and speak your mind when appropriate. But don’t be the jerk that everybody dislikes.
Radical candor instead involves caring for a person and challenging them when they are in the wrong because you care for them.
Radical Candor Is Kind
Imagine you saw a person crossing the road while a truck come screaming down the road towards them. Wouldn’t you shout to tell them to get out of the way of the truck? Of course you would. You may not know this person and you might feel embarrassed to shout in public but you would not hesitate to save their life.
At work, you might choose to be professional and not share private details. But allowing yourself to express when you are having a bad day shows vulnerability. It also creates a safe space for others to be vulnerable. And vulnerability builds trust and strong relationships.
When correction is required, choose to be kind in expressing the correction. Tell people when they are doing something wrong when you know the outcome will be detrimental to their progress.
Choose to be radical and expressive in your communication. Choose candor, the quality of being open and honest when you communicate in your workplace.
