Laying off people, even when unavoidable, is probably the hardest thing a CEO does — even more difficult than shutting down a business or handling a crisis. Two incredibly courageous CEOs share what it’s like to wake up with diminished ranks and start rebuilding their business, their team and, most critically, their culture. Can a special culture survive a tough round of layoffs? How can you prevent further flight? How do you restore trust? Where are opportunities to grow tighter and stronger in the process?
