That was no a classy act on Armstrong's part, from a leadership or a person's standpoint. I do agree with the article, however, that it's important to clarify when and why someone is let go to circumvent rumors and to reinforce cultural/performance standards. I would argue, however, that it isn't fair to "make an example out of someone" either, though alluding to the shortcomings of a past employee can be helpful to current employees. Do not bind an individual to their failures; the failure was an event, not the identifier for that person.
