Employee termination can be a sensitive subject but as a leader, it is one which you need to be prepared for. Sometimes it just does not work out. Not all employees are meant to stay with your organization forever and that is ok. Just note that regardless of the reasons you need to treat the person with respect and dignity. These core principles will help guide you through this potentially emotionally-charged situation.
This is where my guest for this episode comes to play. Alison Gerlach is a strategic management consultant, podcaster, instructor with extensive experience with large organizations. She brings a skill set which is not easily found. Since she has a great understanding of employee termination and therefore, I had to have her on the show.
