The Bad Influence

Real Leaders Fire People

Why they do it, who is eligible, and how it works

A real leader credit

The second best way to assess if someone has what it takes to be a leader is to observe them firing an underperforming employee.

If you’ve fired someone before, you know what I mean. If you haven’t yet, I wish I could help you avoid this situation, but it’s close to impossible.

We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
