Join Todd Dewett for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Letting an Employee Go.
To wrap up the whole process of…letting someone go, I want you to…first begin by focusing on yourself.…For most people, this process is…very stressful and draining.…I want you to spend a little time away from work,…actually thinking about, recognizing,…and validating your emotions.…You're very likely experiencing several types…of abnormally heightened emotions following a termination.…Acknowledging this is the first…step to getting back to normal.…I also want you to remind yourself that you…did what you could to develop and help…the person before letting them go.…
I want you to remind yourself that…your action has made the team stronger.…These are laudable behaviors.…After your own personal reflection, I'd encourage you…to follow up with your mentor or a good friend,…who understands what it is you've just done.…This give you a chance to share insight you have…and to ask any questions you've been thinking about.…It's sometimes amazing how chatting with the…more experienced person can add…needed perspective to your situation.…
