Making sense of a sudden firing

by on
in Firing,Human Resources,Leaders & Managers,Management Training

Q. When I came in on Monday, I learned that a manager who works down the hall was fired. She was always a real pro, so I’m stunned. I had only an inkling of some problems she was having with management. The whole thing is so distracting to me. I want some answers! Where can I find them?

A. Maybe, just maybe, it’s not your business. Sure, it’s jarring to learn a colleague was canned. And if you’re friends with the person, you’ll surely hear her side. But employers do not owe a detailed explanation when someone is fired. In fact, in most cases a responsible organization should not reveal too much about an employee termination. Focus on your own performance and advance your cause by not engaging in gossip or speculation. Beware of letting the incident serve as an excuse that keeps you from doing your work.
