You don't have a choice, you have to make a difficult decision... you have to fire! 🚪

In that case, I have only ONE piece of advice for you. 🔥

For me, this story has been a GAME CHANGER. 🚀

I know how challenging human resources management is for all entrepreneurs these days. Recruiting, retaining talents or firing. 👨💼👩 💼

My advice to you is to draw inspiration from the story of the goose that laid the golden egg. 🐓🥚

Basically, in a company, employees are divided into three categories:

The first is the hens with golden eggs. 🐔 It is your employees who are actively engaged. They are not limited to a 9 to 5. ➡️ You will always need to challenge and protect them.

The second category is tired horses. 🐴 It's the employees who are disengaged. They're passive. 9 to 5. ➡️ Stimulate them.

The third category is foxes. 🦊 They are actively disengaged and they contribute to the bad atmosphere. Some are even toxic. ➡️ Don't feel bad, separating is a good decision for you... and for them!

A study has shown that an average company has 11% of hens with golden eggs, 61% of tired horses and 28% of foxes. 📊

And in your company, what is the ratio?

In the next episode, Champagne for everyone, I give you some recommendations to effectively communicate your cost-cutting plans.
