People Skills During a Recession

I was reading an article about why people skills matter in a recession when I came across this little tidbit:

“I just got rid of the difficult ones and told the rest what I wanted them to do. It’s very simple. The recession is great for me because I can act exactly as I want — I don’t have to bother with complicated people management.”

Show of hands: how many think this is going to come back and bite her in the behind?

I remember during the last tech bubble getting paid an $8,000 bonus just to not quit. If you’re an a-hole, you’re going to pay for it sooner or later.
