Some of the best management books are actually military books, argues Ben Horowitz. There's just a certain mental toughness and focus that that experience gives you, adds Dick Costolo based on his observations.
So how then do you build trust on a team in a company, when it's not (literally) life or death as it is in the military? When giving someone a public "object lesson" — the equivalent of Sun Tzu's chopping someone's head off — could mean losing talent … or being more tyrant than leader? How do you tell the difference?
This conversation — between Horowitz and Costolo (entrepreneur, former CEO of Twitter, comedian and consultant on the HBO show "Silicon Valley") — took place before a group of 25 veterans who participated in the Breakline education and hiring program (one week of which was hosted at Andreessen Horowitz) for veterans shifting into careers in the tech industry.

Ok, let's get this out of the way … this is not really a show about how to fire people.
Rather, today we discuss how to take a poor performer and turn them into a good performer.
And when, despite your best efforts, you are not successful in helping the person turn around, how to be in a position where you can fire the person.
You may not feel good about it (that's ok, you shouldn't!), but you will be confident in your decision and be able to put your head down on your pillow and sleep at night.
Be a Better Manager
Have a Better Career
Every Manager Effective
Every Professional Productive
You know you're a manager - really, truly in a role of managing others - when you get frustrated that things don't happen as fast as they used to.
"Gosh, why don't they GET IT?
Can't they SEE what kind of pressure we are (I AM) under?"
What is taking SO (@((&$^@^Q@*#% LONG?"
That's what all that extra pay is for.
If you've wondered whether it's just YOUR team, it's NOT.
We find a lack of a sense of urgency to be pandemic.
Most managers spend time complaining about this very thing when we coach them.
Executives quickly forget how easy it is to stop draining the swamp as a manager when you keep getting bitten by alligators.
So what can you do about it?
This cast describes a way to approximate One on Ones (O3s) with your boss.
We've been asked this question so many times, it's really amazing that we've waited this long to publicize widely the same answer we've given so many listeners and members. We know, we know: you want to have One on Ones with your boss. But, unless your boss has initiated them with you first, we don't recommend you try to do so. Really!
