Communicating Bad News

Leaders and managers often have to deliver unpleasant or difficult  information to other employees or other internal or external  stakeholders. How well this news is delivered can affect employee  relations as well as public perceptions. 

 Review the following scenario: 

 A new company claims  it manufactures the best dog food in the market. It employs around 250  people worldwide. After six months in business, one of the company’s  brands is found to contain harmful bacteria. Overnight, reports start  pouring in from all over the country about pets falling sick, some  critically. The company wants to communicate with its stakeholders  through a memo before major news channels start to cover the disease. 

Assume that you are an assistant to the company’s chairperson.
