Involuntary Exit: Navigating the Challenges of Sudden Job Loss

Involuntary Exit: Navigating the Challenges of Sudden Job Loss

Let’s face it. Losing a job can happen to any one of us, especially in this high-winds labor market.

Fact: In September 2022, layoffs in the U.S. were 67% higher than the same time in 2021. As leaders, we know having a job and a career isn’t just about our financial resources. It’s about our identity and belonging to a community. 

When we’re suddenly severed from our company, we lose our title, position, power and who we think we are. It can be one of the most traumatic times of our professional lives. We find ourselves devastated, yet navigating challenges that require self-compassion, a public persona, and strategic reflection about our purpose.

I wrote my book Involuntary Exit to guide mid- and senior-level executives through the emotional roller coaster of job loss and how to take action to move forward.  Even if you’re not in transition now, the practical advice will put you ahead of the game. One reviewer on Amazon wrote, “If you are actively working and you even remotely sense that things aren't quite right between you and your employer, I strongly encourage you to trust your instincts, be proactive, and read this book.”

In this Webinar you’ll learn: 

- Practical steps to take immediately after you’re let go.
- How to “lean out” to tell your story
- How to prepare for your next role
- Strategies and practices you’ll need to change your mindset
- How to avoid being “faux-fired”
- Simple steps to take if you feel you’re being pushed out
- 10 ways to build resilience in the face of uncertainty

Who Can Benefit:
Anyone who has been at the C-Suite, Senior Vice President, Vice President, Director or Officer levels. 
Anyone who has been a leader of a company, start-up, department, division, team. 
Anyone who is at the top of their profession and all who are navigating upward.
