The White Rabbit Podcast
Whether you are a professional corporate employee or a startup entrepreneur, good communication and presentation skills are widely accepted as critical success factors towards reaching your business goals.
In this podcast, Matt Krause and Alper Rozanes, who are communications trainers, authors and startup investors share their views on assorted presentation-related techniques.
As they say at the beginning of the movie The Matrix, “Follow the white rabbit.”
Inspired by a recent guest’s comment, Matt and Alper dig into Alper’s patented 4-step process for presenting bad news, not just bad news to the board, but bad news to pretty much any audience.
The four steps are: 1. State the obvious (be upfront about the problem); 2. Tell them why you believe this happened; 3. Tell them what next steps you will be taking; 4. Give them a timeline.
Anybody who needs to break some negative news to someone else (and who amongst us hasn’t been in that boat at some point) should listen to this episode.
