TRG Arts Leadership Book Club: Radical Candor

TRG Arts Leadership Book Club: Radical Candor

UPDATE (Thursday, March 12) from Jill Robinson, CEO: 


TRG has taken the decision to cancel the Book Club scheduled for Thursday, March 12.

We will reschedule the Book Club for a future time, but the priority for us at the moment is to be in coordination with the arts and cultural sector, to ensure you are supported through the Coronavirus crisis.

We will keep you updated when we have a new date for the Book Club, and we believe this Radical Candor conversation is critical to ensuring arts and culture thrives. 

Stand by for updates from TRG, and remember: arts and culture is now, and will ALWAYS be, a bright light in our communities. Let’s come together to ensure it is so!

Arts Leadership Book Club is designed with the “learning and curious” executive leader in mind, to develop themselves in dialague with their peers.

Our next Book Club will gather a group of arts and cultural leaders and emerging leaders from across the globe for a conversation to discuss the themes in Radical Candor

We'll be discussing the themes around how you can create a culture of feedback, build a cohesive team and achieve great results - and to be a "be a kick-ass boss without losing your humanity."
