  • ---Shares

Just as nobody wants to be fired, it seems that nobody -- not even business veterans -- wants to do the firing. “I hate to fire,” said Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran in her keynote at the Ready to Launch event in September. “It’s just not the fun part of business.”

Still, sometimes firing is sometimes necessary, and easier when performance expectations are made clear to managers and staff from the beginning. In this short video, Corcoran shares her system for eliminating low performers, and explains why a company should “shoot the dogs early,” both for finances and morale.
