From the top of the corporate ladder to the bottom, everyone is at risk of getting axed, canned, fired, hit with the pink slip, the sack, being downsized, or simply being “laid off.” Regardless of how and when it happens, it may feel like it’s the end of the world. But being fired is only the beginning of the journey, not the end. It’s what an individual does after being fired that defines who they are and shows others what they’re truly made of.
In WE GOT FIRED…AND IT’S THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO US, Harvey Mackay interviewed a fascinating cross section of high profile figures including Robert Redford, Larry King, Michael Bloomberg, Joe Torre, Lee Iacocca, Billy Jean King, Muhammad Ali, Lesley Visser, Bill Belichick, Bernie Marcus, Pat Mitchell, Jesse Ventura, and many more. These high-profile figures share with Mackay the intimate tales of strength and resilience that are at times riveting, tragic, defeating, depressing, entertaining and always inspirational.
