I don’t get it.
When you KNOW that you have someone in your company that has to be let go – do it today. Stop being such a
chicken shit poor leader.
Do it with empathy.
But do it today.
The data says, that the cost of keeping the wrong person is 15x their annual salary. It costs you WAY too much money to keep them.
ALL the reasons you give for not letting them go, are likely a sign that you’re simply nervous about doing it. But do it you must. Today.
If you want more info on how to fire people properly – these DVDs on Culture & Leadership both cover it. As does the sections on People in Double Double.
