I love this podcast

Well, admittedly, I am biased. This is the podcase I do with Russ Laraway. We are having enormous fun doing it. But of course we want to know how it could be better. Give us Radical Candor on Radical Candor :)

Radical candor

Inspiring and thought provoking. As an area head in academia I am challenged by the process of supervising people. It wasn't what I was originally hired to do (I teach) but rather was tapped to accomplish because of the structure of the department. In essence, I am an "administrator" for all the needs of the area within the department but am also expected to critique the work of my colleagues, create and present ideas to improve curriculum and course trajectory and the profile of the area. However I have absolutely no power to hire or fire. My team is comprised of professors with tenure (I have tenure) who I "inherited." I don't have the ability to compose the perfect team. The ideas I present to my area or department- I have no real power to implement. The structure is basically an exercise in the good or ill will of my colleagues, there is no way to enforce the completion or quality of delegated tasks. If a colleague forgets to do their work or is too slow or shoddy, I have no way to exact consequences beyond a conversation. All of which begins to feel incredibly burdensome to me. In addition this duty is in many ways a "service" to my department and University as my salary in no way reflects the additional duties, I am given a slight course load reduction as compensation.
I'm looking for methods to be proud of my work and move forward in a manner that I feel reflects my values and ethics and will help prevent complete cynicism or bitterness on my part. This show is informative and inspiring and I feel as if I'm in on a conversation to which I was never privy in studies for my own discipline. Thanks!

So Smart, helpful and interesting!

Very excited to watch this podcast develop and grow. Great start with the first episode. The insights and stories Kim and Russ have to share aren't just for managers or employees who are struggling in the work place. Radical Candor works for everyone and will make your work place and communications with everyone much better! Give it a shot!
