Last week I dispelled two of the biggest myths in business today:

  1. ‘There’s no such thing as customer loyalty anymore.’…and,
  2. ‘You can’t get great staff anymore.’

If you missed last week’s insightful Blog, you can access it here,  Cooper’s Blog – June 10.  At the end of that Blog, I promised we’d look at other big myths that are holding many businesses back, but I’ve just received an important short video from my friend Shelle Rose Charvet, one of the smartest people I’ve ever met, that I want to share with you NOW.  Shelle is a global thought leader in the field of linguists and the author of the best-selling book, ‘Words That Change Minds’.   

Shelle’s video is about a more effective way to deliver bad news…and heaven knows, there’s lots of bad news these days.  Bad news to be delivered to employees, customers, suppliers and landlords as businesses struggle to survive during this challenging time. 

But even in the best of times, there’s often bad news that needs to be delivered in business, and to our family and friends.  Most of us are ‘good news bears’.  We love delivering good news, but we delay dealing with the ‘bad news’ situations.  Sometimes we don’t address those situations at all, ever, in the foolish belief that they’ll somehow magically go away.  They never do.  They just get worse.

So, here’s the link to Shelle’s short video,  InstituteForInflunece.com/TheBadNewsFormula Now, make a list of at least 3 ‘bad news’ situations that you need to deal with and, using Shelle’s ‘Bad News Formula’, determine how you’re going to deal with them.  It will take a huge  weight off you when you do.     

That’s it for this week…

Stay calm…live brilliantly…and do at least 3 important or kind things each day!
