Hello! Welcome to "Michael's Better Business English".

This month we're looking at how to be tactful(机智的;圆滑的;老练的).

Now, tactful is a little bit of a difficult word.

Tactful means to be sensitive(灵敏的;敏感的), to avoid(避免) hurting(伤害) other people's feelings.

This is very important when you're giving bad news,...

...introducing a negative(消极的) topic, or criticizing(批评) someone.

How can you do this?

Well, there are three steps to being tactful.

Step one, signal(信号).

Signal means to signal(发信号) to the listener some bad news or negative topic is coming.

And we use words like, "unfortunately(不幸地)," "regrettably(遗憾地)," "with regret".

This lets the listener know something bad is coming and it helps them prepare(准备).

Second, use some kind of qualifier(限定词).

A qualifier is some expression(表达) like "it seems" or "it appears(看来)".

This has a softening(软化的) effect(效果;作用).

Third, use a modifier(修饰语)

Modifiers are words like "slight(少量的;轻微的)" or "small".

For example, "We have a slight problem with the delivery

(交付;递送)

These words make it feel less and underplay(轻描淡写) the negative topic.

So, being tactful is not easy.

But by using these three steps, you can do it.

Thank you and good luck.
