Dan McCarthy recently wrote a post for his Great Leadership blog titled “The 10 Mistakes Every Leader Should Make (and learn from) Before They Die.” The post and the comments that followed it were insightful and thought-provoking. The regret that Dan claims to hear the most is “Taking too long to fire a poor performer.” I don’t think firing employees comes naturally to anyone—except perhaps Donald Trump. Many new leaders avoid making this tough call.
