How to Fire People Empathetically

Firing an employee is often viewed as a right of passage for a manager or boss. It can also be incredibly difficult – people are terrified of saying the wrong thing, being the “bad guy,” or even putting the team or company in legal jeopardy. Yet, letting go of an employee who is underperforming or who is not the right fit is necessary. Not doing so can lead to keeping employees for longer than practical, which can lead to compromised morale, lower productivity, and higher costs. But what if there’s another way to look at terminating employment?

In this webinar, The Good Doctors of Abbey Research will teach you how to do the emotional and logistical work of firing an employee effectively while preserving morale, camaraderie, and integrity by using a framework of empathy. They’ll cover not only what empathy actually is (spoiler alert: not just emotions) but how you can operationalize it within your organization with everything from hiring to firing and all points in between.
