Proactive Strategies to Address Fear of Being Laid Off or Fired

Proactive Strategies to Address Fear of Being Laid Off or Fired Discussed in Free Teleclass for Corporate Executives

NEW YORK – August 4, 2010 — Many corporate executives are experiencing uncertainty in their careers right now and fear—whether it’s valid or not—that their job might be in jeopardy. Every day it seems there is more news of lay offs, management changes and stories of people being fired as companies continue to respond to the economic environment.

Doing what you can to prepare for the worst case scenario will alleviate some of the stress you may be feeling and can help you act more confidently. “While you can’t necessarily control your future there are steps you can take to anticipate and prepare for any eventuality at work,” says Amanda Mitchell, an ICF certified professional coach who has worked with hundreds of Fortune 500 senior level executives. “When people feel like their positions are at risk they tend to reduce their visibility as they ‘hunker down’ and brace for the worst. That can backfire and create a self-fulfilling prophecy given the ‘out-of-sight/out-of-mind’ mindset in many companies.”

The free August 12 teleclass, “Preparing for the Worst: Being Laid Off, Fired or Under New Management” is part of a Quarterly Free Call series offered for corporate executives who want to have a better work experience.

During this call, you’ll learn what you need to:

Evaluate the likelihood of a layoff, firing or a management change
Take the practical steps necessary so that if the worst happens you’re as prepared as possible
Know how to behave during the actual event so that you don’t create a situation that makes moving forward more difficult for you

This call will be structured with solid blocks of content and interim check-ins for Q&A, so participants complete the call with clear next steps.

If you would like to take action so that you are prepared for the worst, listen to the FREE August 12th Teleclass, “Preparing for the Worst: Being Laid Off, Fired or Under New Management” Thursday, August 12th, at 8pm EST. If you can’t make the call, you can sign up and we will make the audio available to those who register. Visit www.ourcorporatelife.com/freecalls for registration and other information.
