How to Deliver Difficult News


Isn’t it fun when you share good news? Doesn’t the thought of announcing the early and successful implementation of a major project bring a smile to your face?

Sure it does. In most cases sharing good news is easy. When you have good news, EVERYONE wants to hear what you have to say. When you have good news it ALMOST does not matter how you deliver that news. Well almost.

You live and work in the real world and that means that not all of your news is good news.  You might have to tell your sponsor that a key delivery date is going to be missed. You might have to tell your team that they will be working weekends for the next several weeks. That is life in the real world. And that is when real professionals like yourself show their strength.

Talk about a situation where you really need some skills, delivering difficult news really requires you to pull it together. There is an expression which states that often when we need to be at our best we are actually at our worst.

Is this true for you when you need to deliver difficult news? If so you are NORMAL.

This is an opportunity to separate yourself from the pack. See, every cloud has a silver lining and impressing others with your ability to deliver difficult news just might be your silver lining.
