Don’t soften the hard conversations

Sometimes you have to give critical feedback.

Your employee is simply not cutting it. Last chance.

The worst thing you can do is to be mielie-mouthed.

First, you don’t get your message across, second, the recipient doesn’t realise he’s on a  final warning.

Rather say it as it is.

Give the person a fair chance to course-correct.

Don’t soften hard conversations.
