There is a secret that is seldom openly discussed.

It happens far more than you realize, and you learn phenomenal lessons when it happens to you. But because it is never talked about, others don’t have the opportunity to learn from the lessons – until now, that is.

I joined John Hall from Westchester County Business Journal last week to discuss Why Being Fired Isn’t So Bad you can listen to our conversation here.

This was from my favorite chapter to write in my new book Rapid Growth, Done Right, Kogan Page. Because unlike the rest of the book filled with CEOs and leaders interviews by name, this whole chapter is anonymous! So all of a sudden the stories are more candid, detailed, and give the true reaction to what happened and why. Five leaders tell their detailed story of being fired or pushed out each covering what happened when they knew it started to go wrong, and what blunt advice they would give themselves in hindsight.

You can see the chapter recap and lessons learned here:


If you have recently been fired, laid off, furloughed, or pushed out, you can use the time to define and find your perfect job, I will share more how to do just that in next weeks VAL-uable Insights so stay tuned!

Dedicated to growing your business,
