Communicating Negative Messages: Delivering Bad News Skillfully

Online Course: ID# 1003082

About This Course:
No business communicator enjoys delivering bad news, which will usually disappoint, irritate, or sometimes anger those who receive it. But at one time or another, all professionals will be faced with the unpleasant task of having to deny customers' requests, reject applications for credit, inform employees of policy changes, or tell job applicants that they have not been hired.

Bad-news messages must be delivered carefully, with the ultimate goal being acceptance of the message by those to whom it is directed.

This online course identifies the steps to follow when communicating negative messages using either the direct or indirect approach. The course explains and gives examples of strategies for buffering the bad news before it is delivered, relating the bad news in a manner designed to lessen the pain it might cause, and closing the message in a manner that maintains the message receiver's good will.What You'll Learn:After completing this course, the learner will be able to:
