Is it better to receive difficult news sugar coated or just straight to the point?


I think it's human nature to want to soften a blow, but at the same time, listening to someone tap dance around a subject can be very stressful to the person receiving the bad news. If you were receiving a bit of bad news - say that your job was going away, how would you want to be told? Is it better to go into long explanations and sugar coating - or just get to the point and let's manage it?
