How to give bad news well
Jul 13, 2020 Season 1 Episode 9
Paul Kitcatt and Chalice Croke

The post-lockdown world is upon us, and with it, a lot of job losses. The next few months are going to be difficult, to say the least. In this podcast, we're talking about how business leaders should tell their people bad news. It's never great, but you can make it much worse by handling it badly - and conversely, you can make it hurt a little less by doing it well. We're drawing here on our own experience, and hoping we can help you rise to this horrible challenge and come through it like a decent human being. Serious, important stuff.
