Purpose: Giving people bad news is one of the hardest things to do in any aspect of our lives. This is no less true in business relationships. This assignment will allow you to practice delivering negative messages in an effective way.
Specific Assignment: Write an e-mail message to the members of your team. The bad news you are going to share is that the team needs to stay and work on the Target project over Thanksgiving week. For this assignment, take the position of the team leader and write as if your team were a real, professional consulting group that had been planning on a week vacation over Thanksgiving until something came up that required you to change plans.
You may want to consult the chapter from the Guffey textbook and the research by Kitty Locker about the best way to deliver negative messages.
The rules for writing an e-mail are largely the same as for the other kinds of documents we have been reading. One key to remember is that people do not like to read long e-mail messages.
