Radical Candor in Recruitment: Learn how to Transform your Talent Conversations

After being inspired by seeing Kim Scott, Author of Radical Candor in May last year, Antonia sought to transform the conversations her team were having with Hiring Managers and candidates.

She rolled out the Radical Candor framework as part of her quest to attain and provide authentic and constructive feedback in the recruitment process.

Hear how she transformed the mindset of “politeness” to positive outcome and “interrogations” to rewarding interviews with Executives and Hiring Managers. You’ll learn about the communication quadrant from Obnoxious Aggression to Ruinous Empathy and how you can get your organisation to be Radically Candid, to achieve clarity and enhance candidate experience.
