My whole management approach is to hire the best people I can find, train them thoroughly and well, get them excited and proud to be part of our team, and then work with them to achieve our goals together. If you do all of that right, especially hiring the right people, I’ve found you don’t have to fire very often.“Nevertheless, I tried my best to mitigate and tend to give adequate room for the employee to close the gap. Even at times for the best employee can have lapsed due to his personal situation and as long as it is temporary or tolerated for the greater good, I think it works for me. So with me, firing is a last resort. But when it’s got to be done, it’s got to be done, and the faster and cleaner, the better. But the person as a poor employee can wreak terrible damage in undermining the morale of an entire team of good people. When there’s no other way, I’ve found it’s better for all concerned to act decisively in getting rid of offenders who won’t change their ways.”
