Leaders Read#18



👋 Hello everyone,


Here are a couple of posts you might have missed:


 

📚 Book Summary:

This week's book is "Radical Candor" by Kim Scott.


You should read this book if you are looking for one of the best leadership manuals for today's modern cultural corporations. Kim Scott is taking her knowledge from leading effective teams at Google and Apple and sharing how you create relationships while keeping the company's mission a priority. This book is about how to get the work done, regardless of whether you manage one or a thousand.


One of my favorite take away from the book is this:

"From the moment you learned to speak, you started to challenge those around you. Then you were told some version of "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Well, now it's your job to say it. And if you are a boss or a person in a position of some authority, it's not just your job; It's your moral obligation. Just say it."


✅ Actionable advice:

Leadership comes with risks of offending someone, but that is the position, not you personally. It makes life easier if you understand how to separate the two. With that said, as a leader, you have moral obligations that surpass the company mission. It's your moral obligation to say things-"Your fly is down." "You got something in your teeth." Be the person that people around you can look at and know you give a damn.
