The professor explained that proper positioning is the key to dealing with the unpredictable job loss
ANDOVER, Kan., January 9, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Recently laid off employees may wonder how they can prevent it. A more important question, answered in this new practical book on resilience during career upheavals, may be how to get back on your feet after a job loss.
In “The 6ixth Evolution,” former CEO and management professor Dr. Larry G. Straub provides a formula for evaluating strengths and weaknesses, in the face of uncertain career shifts, such as layoffs and job changes. By completing survey questions, readers can learn how to prepare for difficult times and prepare for success.
“You can minimize the damage when you lose your job,” says Straub. “It’s like we’re all on the same white knuckle flight when we lose our jobs. The difference to my readers is that they’ll be wearing their figurative seat belts, while others will be flying around the cabin.”
Through an exploration of five work-related environments, readers are offered tools to assess their skills in building sustainable lives and careers in increasingly challenging times. Finding the right path is especially important for those who are still in college, as well as those in the early and mid-career stages.
“As a society, we are required to be adaptable, by reinventing and repositioning our lives, as well as our careers, for an unpredictable landscape,” said Straub. “By following the formulas presented, readers will be able to explore future opportunities and face the challenges of career management, in a time of exponential change.”
