You can say that there were "differences" between you and leadership or there wasn't any compatibility.

Sorry this happened to you seems unfair that you lose your job because of something that seems personal. It might not come up but if it does I'd be as vague as possible.

You can be honest about it. There is nothing wrong with being honest than cover it all up with lies and end up not being coherent.

We fought, I lost, here I am.

What wasn’t a match with your manager? What problems lead to the fall out, and is there anything with hindsight you’d change? You can talk about how it wasn’t a cultural fit

I would just be honest. You can say it in a respectful way to where it doesn't sound like you are just blaming the director.

Just make something up
