How to Fire Someone

Go read Jerry’s recent column for Inc on how to fire somebody.

You’ll see why he is such a great board member, consigliere, adviser, and all around great guy.

I agree with Jerry that firing someone is one of the most difficult things you have to do in business.

Further, doing it well is the mark of a great manager.

There are some CEOs in my portfolio that have amazing relationships with people they’ve fired. It’s a sign of a great manager if you can pull that off.
