Ep #32: Why Founders and CEO’s MUST Be Able to Fire Anyone
If you’re a CEO, you’ve got to get good at being able to fire anyone. You don’t have to love it. It’s a superpower, and once you have it, you won’t feel bound by someone’s poor performance again.
What you’ll find in this episode:
- There should always be an evaluative measure, that’s outside your opinion of someone, that helps you know if this person is contributing so that the business is benefiting.
- Once you get good at being able to fire anyone, you’re never intimidated by what people do or don’t do in your business. You’re never held hostage.
- Your business is only as good as your poorest performer.
- Once your values are dialed, this becomes an objective part of what you do. Values are not subjective.
