It felt awful. Even though I knew the position was not a good fit, he had been on my team a long time. Jennifer helped me ask my intuition some questions about the situation. Through this work, I could honestly feel that I was helping this man by firing him. It felt like it would get him to a job he really loved. Coming from this intuitive perspective I was able to release the stress and the dreadful feeling I had been carrying and really be present in the moment. In the end, letting this person go was a positive, friendly exchange for both of us. Months later, he came back to tell me about his new fabulous job! I certainly know that coming from an intuitive perspective on the situation helped make all the difference.
I’ve learned to bring clarity and insight into uncomfortable situations. I take a few breaths, connect to my inner guidance and ask for help gaining some perspective. This always gives me clarity on the situation so I can address the uneasiness with respect, objectivity and presence. Thanks so much Jennifer!
