You will likely experience some type of job loss during your career, whether it is caused by a termination, reduction in force, layoff, or by choice. These events may be more traumatic and stressful without appropriate scenario planning because you haven’t considered a “Plan B.”

 

After 28 years as a highly skilled employee, David Shriner-Cahn was told that his job was over. Today, David is a thriving entrepreneur, speaker, and host of two podcasts – Smashing the Plateau and Going Solo. He helps high-achieving professionals, who have had a late-career job loss, build their consulting or coaching business, so they can do what they love and get paid what they’re worth – consistently.

 

David and I talk about why scenario planning is vital to building Your Mid-Career GPS, as well as some things you can do to make a job loss easier to help you thrive on the other side of it.
