Ok, let's get this out of the way … this is not really a show about how to fire people.

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.
