Why is getting fired such a taboo topic? Whether you are losing your job due to redundancy, being considered unfit for the job, or a host of other reasons, getting fired can be a hugely traumatic event in one’s life. We don’t openly talk about being fired, because it’s not something that people want to advertise about themselves. So when it happens to you, it’s easy to feel like you’re in a club by yourself.
The Art of Getting Fired aims to coach people through the entire process of being fired, drawing on my extensive experience across the globe during which I have been fired, seen countless others get fired, and fired people myself. I outline the process employers go through when firing somebody and the reasons behind it, strategies to avoid being fired once you find yourself at risk, and what to do immediately after you've been fired. Plus, I help you process the various range of emotions and feelings you might experience, the practical aspects of what to put on your résumé, and how to approach a job interview.
This book is for anyone who has ever been fired or suspects they might be fired, or managers who have to fire others. So let’s talk about getting fired so that we can move forward from it and thrive!
