Emotions of Management
Review the evaluation methods for your plan. How will you communicate results to management on a regular basis? Consider a monthly report, management briefings, updates, and a yearly summary for board presentations.
Describe how you plan to deal with the negative emotions (from employees or other audience groups) that often accompany bad news or other information.
Finally, prepare the opening of the oral presentation that will describe your completed plan to management.
In your presentation notes, add 1 strategy for each of the following:
Reading the emotions of management: What to look for and how to respond
Dealing with any negative responses or emotions to the plan: Ways to resolve any possible conflict in the meeting
Finding approval for the plan: Continuing the meeting by moving past any negative emotions (resulting in a win-win for everyone involved)
Add your presentation notes to the end of the plan.
