SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Radical Candor, the executive education company based on Kim Scott’s New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling book Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity, has partnered with Mursion to design and deliver immersive and scalable simulations for practicing how to give and receive guidance and feedback.

Radical Candor’s proven feedback framework is a compass for candid conversations, guiding people to give feedback that’s both kind and clear, specific and sincere. This exciting new partnership provides a playful-yet-effective way for people to practice their skills.

Powered by a blend of artificial and human intelligence, Mursion delivers real-time simulations that call for learners to be fully present in the moment. This realism offers a scalable and tailored experience for companies that want to practice skills like Radical Candor and turn them into daily behaviors.

Since its release in 2017, Radical Candor has inspired a global management revolution and launched a company of passionate professionals who have worked with hundreds of organizations around the world to help them create a culture of feedback, build cohesive teams, and achieve great results.

Radical Candor aims to amplify its impact by employing an array of customized VR simulations created with Mursion, providing learners of every professional level with an immersive experience to enhance their leadership practice. Simulations engage emotional, cognitive, and behavioral faculties for transformative, ongoing learning that is also scalable, consistent, and cost-effective.

“Empathy is at the heart of almost every single simulation that we do and consistently ranks among the top priorities of our customers,” says Mursion CEO Mark Atkinson. “We are honored to partner with the leader in this field and excited about the impact that is possible when you pair Kim’s model with our platform.”

Mursion’s individualized virtual reality simulations provide a new tool to help leaders apply the skills they learn with Radical Candor in a secure virtual environment.

“Radical Candor is easy to say, but hard to do,” notes Kim Scott, author of the bestselling book Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity and co-founder of Radical Candor, LLC. “The best way to get better at it is to practice, and we’re excited to partner with Mursion to provide opportunities for people to practice Radical Candor in a way that’s safe, fun, and effective.”
