Parting Of Ways.

Blogger Nomad In Cyberspace has a very entertaining post up in his blog.

Like he found, I too found the new phrase “ambitious managed divergence” absolutely fascinating.

I wish that I had thought up this one during the days when I was sacking people. I am sure that the parting of ways would have been much less stressful to both me and the sacked.

Here is another look at that phrase from a journalist’s point of view. I like the take on bureaucracy there!

I hope that Ursula is reading this post. She can find a lot of use for the phrase!

Another gent who is bound to benefit from this phrase is our venerable Shashi Tharoor.

  1. When I was working I read several books about good management. Dealing with firing people was discussed, and often if the manager does it right some people may come back and thank them later. The main thing is to do it humanely and recognize the employee’s strong points even though the person isn’t a good match for the organization.

    Our division was always on a financial roller coaster, and they offered classes on professional development for those of us who were interested. One of them had us analyze our skills, values and interests and see how they matched with what the organization needed. It was one of the best classes I’ve ever taken.

    • I have known cases where the sacked employees had returned to thank the Manager who had sacked them. Very often this is due to better opportunities having arisen due to the sacking,
