We Have To Talk: Announcing Unpopular Decisions without Destroying Morale

Face it: As a leader, you will have to make tough decisions from time to time, and those decisions could adversely affect the people who report to you. In addition, you will have to announce and justify those decisions to a potentially upset—even hostile—group of employees.

Every decision you make, no matter how big or small, has the power to change your staff’s feelings about and opinions of you and your organization. Even seemingly trivial, innocent changes can feel like inconveniences or punishments to your staff.

And while you will never be able to avoid making the hard decisions, you can lessen employee backlash and gain support more quickly if you learn how to communicate the changes—both effectively and confidently.

Join us for We Have to Talk: Announcing Unpopular Decisions without Destroying Morale to learn how to manage those situations when you must share disappointing news or have awkward conversations with your employees.

During this 60-minute recording, Guy Harris will teach you how to clearly and honestly explain the need for making the changes, allowing you to strengthen relationships with your employees, build their trust in you and gain their buy-in. You will learn how to:

  • Break tough news delicately.
  • Handle negative—potentially hostile—responses from employees.
  • Communicate your decisions honestly.
  • Explain your actions clearly.
  • Gain buy-in and support from your staff.
  • Manage difficult situations effectively.
  • Use difficult conversations to improve your relationships with employees.
