From the outside, a company might look perfect and successful. That's because leaders typically carry out unpleasant and unavoidable tasks behind closed doors. 

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Patrick Bet-David explains how to fire someone at your company. 

When you're thinking about letting someone go, ask yourself why you hired them in the first place. You'll probably realize it's because you didn't hire them properly.

Bet-David discusses 11 important tactics to keep in mind when firing someone. Start off by putting it gently to the person -- it's important to avoid any retaliation or misinterpretations. Getting right to the point, acknowledging their feelings and asking for permission to give feedback are some ways to make the firing process quick and professional.
