#14 The Training Heuristic for Firing

This week's podcast episode is about a training heuristic I used in a previous company. Basically: "if you can't train them, let them go."

We'll discuss why this is a direct implication from the ideas in the Starter Manager Guide — that the Manager's Job, and the necessity of training compels us to consider this rule.

I then work out the caveats and implications from applying this rule to your company.

Plus I tell a few horrible firing stories. Of course.
