Topic:   According to Forbes.com if you ask any ten leaders what the hardest part of their job is, nine of them will say some version of "giving bad news." From having performance conversations, or letting employees know the company's not doing well, these are the times that make most leaders want to go home and pull the covers up over their heads. Delivering Difficult Messages through effective communication is a required skill. Leaders who are competent in delivering difficult messages not only demonstrates personal courage but show that they will do things that are personally uncomfortable or difficult for the good of the organization.
