As a manager do you ask: “Do you want the good news or bad news?” Here’s a newsflash…not everyone wants the “good news”! In my Playground Personalities, I’m an Organizer and I always want the bad news first! Why would I want the good news? It’s the bad news I have to deal with! And no, it’s not that Organizers live in a world where the glass is half empty! It’s the way we roll! Remember, different people respond differently – the Peacemaker is hoping the good news means something good happened to someone and the bad news means the opposite – so they definitely don’t want the bad news. The Revolutionary says “Just spill it, I’ll handle it!” Steamrollers want all the news – they’ll decide if it’s good or bad! So, change up your communication style and see what happens!
