Communication is essential in all aspects of life. When communicating you need to know the type of audience you will be delivering the message to. Be sure to gather all the correct information to be sure it is accurate from beginning to end. When you deal with a crisis situation as in the Chilean Minors accident you need to relay the information face-to-face as bad news needs to be handled with sensitivity and respect to the families and co-workers. The families will have questions and concerns that will need to be addressed at that time. Have a crisis counselor on hand. When you address the co-workers, you will need to be sure that all the safety issues are addressed and be able to give details.
