SAN FRANCISCO, May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Torch, a leading coaching, mentoring and learning development platform for enterprise-level executives, employees and HR leaders, and Radical Candor, an executive education company co-founded by Kim Scott, author of the bestselling book Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity, together announce the launch of a new month-long course called "The Radically Candid Coach."
Participants of the course will attend virtual presentations from Scott and randomly selected participants out of the first 100 to register will have a chance to receive live personal coaching with Scott during the sessions. The course launches May 27 and will run for four weeks. Those interested can register at: https://lp.torch.io/the-radically-candid-coach/.
The core of Radical Candor is a philosophy that teaches "Caring Personally while Challenging Directly." The Radical Candor philosophy has spawned a global management revolution and has been used by companies like Luluemon, nonprofits like St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and financial institutions like the Royal Bank of Canada.
Historically, Scott and her team at Radical Candor have taught this leadership philosophy through in-person or virtual keynotes and workshops, or licensed their content to companies and organizations to deliver internally to their employees. This will be the advent of Scott's entrance into a more public setting, targeting coaches and executive leaders who want to learn how to use the Radical Candor framework.
"Showing compassion is real work, and, like all real work, it is rewarding and also taxing. All over the world, leaders are being called upon to listen to stories that are hard to hear and to respond to emotions that are hard to witness," Scott says. "As a coach, manager or leader, this kind of emotional labor is integral to your success, but it's not easy. The Radically Candid Coach is designed to give coaches the tools they need to support their clients, teams and themselves."
"We're thrilled to be partnering with Kim and her team at Radical Candor to bring this course and Kim's expertise to the public," says Torch CEO Cameron Yarbrough. "This signifies a moment for Torch as we partner with one of the most influential coaches of our time to bring a taste of what coaching with Torch can feel like."
Designed for coaches and trainers, but beneficial for any leader who wants to get a topline education in Radical Candor, Scott will cover:
- Session 1: Radical Candor Framework
- Session 2: Getting, Giving, Gauging, and Encouraging Feedback
- Session 3: Team Building
- Session 4: Getting Stuff Done: How to Organize Work
