There are times when you have to deliver bad news to your staff, or communicate unpopular decisions to your team … and let’s face it, sometimes those changes don’t always sit well with your people. Ideally, what you really want is employee buy-in; but often you run the risk of doing exactly the opposite – alienating your team! There’s no doubt, it’s a tough situation to be in!
And that’s exactly the topic I’ll be covering in my live Audio Conference on Wednesday May 2 in a program titled “The “Let’s Not Kill The Messenger” Manual – A Leader’s Guide to Communicating Unpopular Decisions and Changes”. I’ll be opening the lines for questions, so I want to know —when it comes communicating, or sometimes even making, unpopular decisions or changes, what is your biggest challenge? What one thing could I help you with that would make the process easier? Go to www.AskMerge.com to ask your question and I’ll answer as many as I can on May 2.
