Transition Essentials: Delivering Bad News with Grace

The essentials for planning, delivering, and follow-up for the single most difficult managerial function - delivering bad news

   Watch Promo

Being able to deliver bad news with respect, dignity and grace is an essential management skill. Yet, it is one that is not taught in management development programs. Canada has experienced a long period of employment growth, which has resulted in several generations in the workplace with little experience delivering bad news. With the 'work anywhere and work at home' experience, delivering bad news via technology adds emotional strife to an already difficult situation. It is a costly and nasty surprise to discover social media is not friendly to the current generation of managers when it comes to providing bad news!

Delivering bad news is fraught with complexity. It is a human thing and humans are emotional. Social media is at the ready to vilify. Human Rights, Union Rights, Labour Laws, Employment Standards and Common Law are all factors in the process. And not to be overlooked, is the impact on people. Employees today and prospective ones for the future, colleagues, customers, and suppliers will look at how your organization lives its' values. Your credibility is on the line.

Transition Essentials: Delivering Bad News with Grace is for you!

The introductory session gives you 6-Steps and a DOWNLOAD of the ESSENTIAL 6-STEPS TO DELIVERING BAD NEWS WITH GRACE. Other micro-learning sessions offer greater depth in managing complex terminations, government processes, multiple locations, distance, unsuccessful in a job competition, and more.

The goal is for you to maintain empathy while knowing you have prepared effectively to deliver bad news with respect, dignity and grace. In so doing, your credibility will remain intact.
