Black mail or buttering up – two approaches to encounters with bosses in off-hours

A couple of weeks ago, Al Coombs and I had a chance to talk about ways to extend one’s personal brand in situations that could be fraught with difficulty, like accidentally running into one’s boss at a bar on St. Patrick’s Day.

Al and I had different takes on how to work that situation to possible advantage and we’d value your input.

Have a listen to the clip and let us know your thoughts: blackmail or buttering up?

Let us know your thoughts!

Large companies have public relations departments to handle their communication crises, but regular folks don’t.

Often they are caught in a dilemma of thinking: ‘what do I say in this situation?’ or ‘how should I respond to that?’

Without the skills to write nuanced copy or craft the perfect verbal response, they can be caught short and end up looking bad.

Thursday mornings at 7:20 a.m., Jill Ellis-Worthington, Chief Communicator for Write.On Communication Services, chats with Mike Stubbs on CJBK’s morning drive show to discuss how to handle Personal PR problems.

Jill helps listeners with their communication issues by applying the principles of PR to every day issues.
