STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
Firing someone is one of the most difficult things you have to do as a leader. Let’s talk about how to do it without destroying their soul. For them it can be painful, humiliating and devastating.
You can’t blindside the person. If you don’t give any indications that there is a problem that shows a lack of empathy, presence and care on your part. Some people aren’t cut out for certain jobs and that’s ok. Speak candidly and honestly. Give ample opportunities to improve performance and document the steps you take to be sure it’s done ethically.
