I had a nice conversation the other day with one of my friends who is also an entrepreneur out on his own. We were talking about the ins and outs of managing a team and what style has or hasn’t worked for either of us. We also touched on how hard it can be to tell somebody they’re fired. We’re not all Donald Trump.
Anyhow, in the midst of the conversation, one line popped out of my mouth that I thought I’d share – “I’ve Never Been Fired From a Job I Cared About”
Sometimes poor performance is a plea to get tossed. Or other times the person is just in a job that doesn’t fit their talent. In the end, many times firing really is the right thing to do for both parties.
