Does your team want to bring their fullest and best selves to work by creating more meaningful, supportive relationships with colleagues?
Using the principles of Radical Candor and expert guidance from Radical Candor-trained coaches, your team will practice modern ways to connect with distributed colleagues.
After a group warm-up exercise and context setting from the Radical Candor facilitator, you will play your way to better relationships through pair exercises and group discussion. The exercises let your team experience the key Radical Candor concept of relationship-building – as well as reflect on what you learned together.
In Round 1 (“Connection and storytelling”), pairs connect and build safety with each other by sharing stories. In Round 2 (“Giving and Receiving Praise”), partners provide each other specific and sincere praise based on the first activity. The experience closes with a group discussion, exploring what Gallup research demonstrates: that requesting feedback can help co-workers bond. Participants reflect on the kinds of questions they could ask that would help them improve on the stories they shared from round 1.
Those who have completed this experience say their teams shifted from feeling it is ‘really hard’ to connect with colleagues to feeling ‘highly confident’ they can build relationships in a distributed/virtual environment.
