Writing Negative Messages

Writing Negative Messages is a lecture which is covered during Business Communication Module.

This Lecture continues the discussion of brief message types with a look at negative (“bad-news”) messages. Students will get practice with both the direct and indirect approaches in a variety of specific message scenarios. A particular point of emphasis in this lecture is helping students understand that negative messages don’t have to be—and in fact should not be—delivered in a negative way.
