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.
