Well, I just fired one of my two direct reports. Sucks. No, he was not able to do the job. Yes, I gave him tons and tons of chances.
Other people I know let their direct reports get by with all kinds of errors, cover for them and whatnot. My bosses actually rate me on my ability not to do that. Why there is so much more pressure on me as compared to others in my dept, I am not exactly sure.
Excuses excuses, I'm just sad that I had to let someone go.
