I think firing someone is perhaps one of the hardest things you have to learn as a founder. Another key realization for me has been that letting people go is a continual part of growing a great team. Via What no one talks about when building a team: letting people go
It’s a scary process. Especially for first timer. How do you talk? How do you let the word out? What are the things to do so it would not be a bad breakup , because you have been working together for sometime.
All above, as a founder are situations you have to be prepared for. This is also where starting up gets interesting and stressful. You learn to handle different situations each day. And each time you grow.
I did mine today. It is my first time and Joel’s post help me get though why letting people go is part of the process.
