People Skills Chat Topic: Firing Employees & Being Fired

Firing employees is a difficult skill for many leaders and managers. Many find it very painful to do. Of course, we wouldn’t expect many to love doing it. Yet why it is so painful is a people skills subject worth exploring. Is it that wonderful feeling of empathy? Or is it more a self-focused desire to avoid pain?

Join us this Sunday Sept. 8th at 10am EDT in global #PeopleSkillsChat on Twitter, as we take on the sensitive topic of firing employees. Let’s explore the reasons it is difficult, the mindset of firing and being fired, and how to handle this all with great respect. The hashtag is #PeopleSkillsChat.

Special thanks to my co-host for this week’s topic Kalyani Sekhar an IT professional with experience in project, quality & risk management. Kalyani carries a deep belief that human potential is infinite and can be motivated to deliver miracles.
