Have you ever been told your job is secure? If you have I find this statement very misleading. Even in good times when the economy is showing signs of an uplift, employment can be terminated. A pink slip is not just for recessionary times.
Each week business leaders for many reasons make prudent decisions to change their teams in order to remain competitive and lean. As a result, select employees are asked to leave. No employee is immune from having to face a termination. The decision to downsize isn’t taken lightly, however the emotional impact it can have on the terminated employee is huge and can pose a lot of intriguing and deep questions on their career future and their personal wellbeing.
While it’s easy to succumb to the negativity and insecurity associated with losing your job, it can also be seen in a positive light, a new opportunity to conduct a self-assessment and uncover a new path unburdened by existing career commitments. Throughout any time of career transition, it is important to have a supportive team, not only of friends and family for emotional support, but of an expert and career confidante trained to help you return to prominence in the workforce. A cheerleader, a trusted advisor and coach who can guide and steer you to new, more challenging heights.
I know job security is not a myth. As a 20+ year veteran in executive carer management, I have listened to numerous clients who never thought they would be the one to be terminated and once exposed to reality, were frustrated with the limited options available for support.
