If you have employees, inevitably at some point you may have to fire one. It's not a task anyone looks forward to. It doesn't have to be mean-spirited or disrespectful however. That's why I thoroughly love this post from Lauren Bacon on how to fire someone with compassion and respect. Great advice for anyone who is or may be an employer one day.
This goes down in my personal history as the least stressful dismissal I’ve ever had to make. But while it’s not something most people relish, I’ve come to feel at peace with firing people when it’s necessary.
That’s not to say I look forward to it. I can’t eat a bite beforehand, and I don’t sleep very well the night before. I feel terrible before and during, and I don’t do it lightly. But I’ve learned a few things that make it much easier – and more importantly, that I think convey the kind of kindness and respect that belong in any employer-employee conversation.
