Economic trends mean that unfortunately many of us will be living through times of increased uncertainty. Many people will have to deal with news of redundancy, and even if you are not directly affected you may know someone who is.If you are a manager, it may even fall to you to break the news to staff.

I have many requests for information and training on this recently, so in addition to the training and Lunch and Learn sessions that I offer I have prepared a handout to help those who must perform this unenviable task prepare for the job. You can find in my download section. It can be used as a training resource or simply as a suggestion for handling a difficult conversation.

Though this is written for use in the workplace and mainly about redundancy, these principles apply to giving and receiving bad news more generally.
