Do you have the stomach to fire people? Have you had experience firing many people ?

Describe the rational and sensible management process you follow in both hiring and firing.

Example: ďMy whole management approach is to hire the best people I can find, train them thoroughly and well, get them excited and proud to be part of our team, and then work with them to achieve our goals together. If you do all of that right, especially hiring
the
right
people,
Iíve
found
you
donít
have
to
fire
very

often. ďSo with me, firing is a last resort. But when itís got to be done, itís got to be done, and the faster and cleaner, the better. A poor employee can wreak terrible damage in undermining the morale of an entire team of good people. When thereís no other way, Iíve found itís better for all concerned to act decisively in getting rid of offenders who wonít change their ways.Ē
