I just presented negative news on the equity performance of my company to the chairman. what do i do?
He was so mad that I presented some news that was so bleak and negative that he did not want to accept the report. All I did was report how the financial markets and earnings resulted for the past year. I also benchmarked the results with other similar companies in the same industry. Our company did not do too hot, but the Chairman got mad at me for reporting such negative results. All I did was do my job and analyze the data. What should I do to get back the good grace from Senior Management?5 AnswersCareers & Employment1 decade ago
