Join Todd Dewett for an in-depth discussion in this video Letting employees go, part of Performance Review Foundations.
…One of the most difficult things you'll ever do…as a leader is make the decision to fire someone.…The only thing more difficult is actually letting them go.…Because the process involves risk for everyone involved, we need…to think through exactly how to make and execute this decision.…To be clear, the performance review is not necessarily the time to let someone go.…It can, however, be a crucial part of the process of documenting performance…as you continue making decisions about a person.…So, I'd like you to consider the possibility…of letting someone go from a review process perspective.…
Let's think about what to do during your…preparations, during the meeting, and following the meeting.…During your preparation, when you're examining the data for a person you feel…might be a candidate for termination, I want you to consider these issues.…First are they consistently a below…average performer.…If so, have you made 2-3 attempts to provide needed…feedback and help so the person can get back on track.…If the answer is yes, have there been 2 or more of these that have been documented?…
