How to talk your way out of being fired
He said the magic words are "I can change."
But--before you say that--you have to completely encompass and acknowledge the feedback--even think up more. "Oh, I see I didn't do X, but I also think I didn't do ABC."
This guy also cried--bringing in human emotion. He says it showed how much he cared about the job.
He basically said give me 90 days. I can change. If I haven't--I will fire myself.
Then he tried to figure what his successor would do and he did it.
Sounds easy, huh?
I dunno on the crying.
