  2. The Corky Story - Part 3 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    Part 3 of Dani’s best management story about how she used the Manager Tools Trinity to terminate a poor performer in an organization where "you can’t fire anyone."

    We often ask at conferences if anyone has ever been told, "You can’t fire anyone around here" about where they work. Every time almost everyone raises his or her hand. It’s not limited to union shops, government organizations or academia where people have tenure. Across industries, across types of managers, across companies large and small, managers are told (and repeat!) over and over again that "they" won’t let us fire anyone. When I was promoted to my first managerial role, I heard the same thing. And I’m here to tell you it’s just not true.

    The Corky Story is a true story about how I managed one of my first direct reports, Corky, who was not performing to standard. Corky was a longtime employee, had years’ worth of strong performance reviews, and was protected status due to his age. He also played golf and socialized regularly with the COO. I was a new manager, much younger than Corky and new to the organization so I didn’t have great relationships like he did. And I worked in an organization where "you can’t fire anyone", especially someone like Corky.

  5. Venture Capital and Control with Dave Teare

    Rework is a podcast by the makers of Basecamp about a better way to work and run your business. While the prevailing narrative around successful entrepreneurship tells you to scale fast and raise money, we think there’s a better way. We’ll take you behind the scenes at Basecamp with co-founders Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson and bring you stories from business owners who have embraced bootstrapping, staying small, and growing slow.

  6. Inheriting A Poor Performer - Part 1 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    This guidance discusses how to manage those directs whom you didn’t hire and who have a history of poor performance.

    When we tell managers that the ultimate tool is raising the bar when it comes to hiring, many, many complain that they’ve never gotten to do that. They then quickly say that they have a direct who has been a poor performer for years. What do they do about HIM? What’s funny about the answer is that no matter the outcome, you’ll appear to be the hero.
