Question
I was dismiss from my job,after being there for1 year.me and a employee had a miss understanding.the boss never came and ask me what happen between me and the employee and he gave me a dismissal letter what should i do

Answer
Dear Sandy,

That depends on several things. What was the misunderstanding? What were the circumstances around the misunderstanding? Did your employer have a legal right to terminate you? In many cases there is often a difference between what is morally right and what is legal. Without knowing more information it is difficult for me to give you specific advice. In general, if you believe you were wrongfully terminated, without an opportunity to explain your side, seek a meeting with someone who can reverse the termination and plead your case.

Good Luck

Experience

I have been a manager then business owner and now consultant for over 40 years. My education and experience working in the real world prepared me for my work as a consultant. However, my experience as a consultant has allowed me to work with some of the top organizations and industries in the world. I have learned from their successes and failures. That has helped me to develop strategies to improve both employee and process performance. I have learned many lessons over the years. However, one stands out above all the others. Without good leadership every organization is ultimately doom to fail. Perhaps Al Gini said it best when he said... "The term “power” comes from the Latin posse: to do, to be able, to change, to influence or effect. To have power is to possess the capacity to control or direct change. All forms of leadership must make use of power. The central issue of power in leadership is not Will it be used? But rather Will it be used wisely and well?" I hope I can help you find the right balance.
