This week I have the pleasure of talking to Kim Scott, the Author of the New York Times bestselling book, Radical Candor: Be a Kickass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity. Kim has had a very successful career in technology – working for startups and tech giants Apple and Google, and then working as a CEO coach and advisor at Dropbox and Twitter, among others. During our conversation, Kim shares her insights about gender, leadership, teamwork, writing, and her important work around radical candor.
