It’s never fun as a leader or colleague having a conversation that isn’t going to deliver good news. It may be a performance issue you need to address….or delivering an unsuccessful interview outcome. Unfortunately it is part and parcel of life at both work and at home.
How to approach?
Try to stand in their shoes to understand what their perspective may be.
Remember it doesn’t have to be perfect. Do your best. As Stephen covey says:
“Begin with the end in mind.”
