This is how I had to start a conversation today. Bah Humbug!
It was a conversation I didn't want to have, I had to take a position I didn't necessarily agree with (but could see the reasoning) a conversation I had fought against having to have (I lost), but a conversation I had to have nonetheless.
There was a business decision made by the business which I had to carry out.
It was probably easier for me than the person I had to talk to. It wasn't fun for anyone.
So, would you prefer to hold this conversation before or after the holiday season? Allow someone to waltz through without a concern (and potentially over spend) or lower the boom before it? Thoughts?
damn lapsed into the cookies... I shouldn't... but YUMMMMMM!
Thanks KarenM and Geoff. It was quite strange actually, lots echoed your thoughts, I received messages from people within the business to see if I was OK. I found it strange yet humbling that people would think from that perspective.
