Good post.

The last person I fired was myself. Before that there were 125 others as my previous company shrank. Since then, I've coached other managers on firing.

There's no easy way to fire someone. But, eventually, I found a not-too-terrible way to frame it..."Everybody deserves to be a success at their work. You are not successful in this situation and here's why..." Framing it this way seemed to help a lot.
