How do you handle bad news?


This is a really quick post, last week was a week full of change for my whole family. We decided to home school our youngest who is 13 soon, and Mark my husband was made redundant with one weeks pay.

Mark has many talents and we have been wanting him to join the business for sometime, combined with home schooling Liam it could not have come at a better time. ( yes of course the money is going to be tight if  not completely inadequate)

But you see I am very fortunate to be surrounded every week by people who inspire me. So how would you have handled my news would it be “a crisis or opportunity”

I think had I not met Allison Galbraith and had the privilege of working very closely with her as she developed her wonderful support/coaching programme for people facing redundancy I may well have dropped into a place of despair. But instead with her words of wisdom I was able to identify the opportunities.

I will tell you more about how Mark will be developing his new role in Step by Step Listening and how he could help you streamline your business processes


Thank you again Allison.

Thank you for listening
