how to deliver bad news soft skills training

A participant in a workshop this week asked,

“Should I tell the customer to have a good day after giving them bad news?”

SMART question!

Once or twice a month, I share my best advice with my email list. I give you ideas to help you go from feeling overwhelmed with escalations, and frustrated about the lack of empathy and connection in interactions, to feeling amazed when you hear friendliness and empathy and you realize your employees are politely controlling calls and preempting escalations.
