My Friend Got Fired ... Welcome to Self-Awareness
Nov 30, 2020
Tim Hagen

This short story depicts the value of self-awareness and coaching. Recently, a friend/business associate get fired from his job. As I asked him what happened, and he went on a tirade of why it was completely unfair and how his boss was a jerk. As the conversation continued, I realized one thing like most people who have been in that predicament very few people are ever truly honest with themselves and self-aware. Most bosses hate firing people; therefore, it begs the question why would anyone want to do this intentionally to hurt somebody? The answer is simple they don't, yet people who do get terminated often go into an emotional state of unfairness and share with anyone who will listen "look what happened to me".
 
 My approach in the podcast is fairly aggressive and hope it sincerely helps.
