So send me the budget thing from last year so I can make up some stuff for next year. K? Later. “Boss”
Scenario 2 You are still the district sales manager. Unfortunately, despite your team’s outstanding performance, the company has decided to begin a new round of layoffs across the entire organization. The company has not specific identified any individuals, but you want to prepare your team for the bad news with a quick email. You prepare the following email to the team: Subject: Sorry, guys. Johnny, As you know revenue was low last quarter. You are doing very well, but the company peeps are really taking this hard. BTW, I think a lot of you will really enjoy being able to spend more time with your families. That’s good, right? Good luck with everything moving forward. “Boss”
