“I Hate To Tell You This…”

Have you ever said something like this when delivering bad news to someone? In most cases, it rings true; we do hate being the bearer of bad news.

We want to be liked. We want relationships to go smoothly. We don’t want to “rock the boat.” But every once in a while, we need to deliver less-than-stellar news—whether we like it or not.

My free ebook, How To Deliver Less-Than-Stellar News, was written for exactly this purpose.

Whether you’re broaching a difficult topic with a spouse, family member, friend, coworker, patient, or client, this ebook will give you the tools you need to communicate your message effectively, gently, and (most importantly) in a way that shows you value the other person.
