Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz speaks at the

Web 2.0 Summit

Yahoo! Abruptly fired chief executive Carol Bartzon, Tuesday, September 7, 2011, ousting the most prominent female CEO in Silicon Valley. No big deal right? But over the phone? This seems to be the trend!

A client of mine, after 21 years on the job was fired over the phone while on a photo shoot. She is a photo journalist; perfect evaluations for 21 years, just downsizing, but over the phone, while working? Told to come in and get her stuff.

For Ms. Bartzon; at that level, why would the board fire her over the phone? Are we losing the personal touch? At least face the person if you are going to release them. What are you thoughts, comment? Let us hear from you!
