Why Hire a Professional in Career Transition & Executive Coaching?

√ Management Training and Support

  • To have an experienced professional provide pre-termination training and support for the manager who is to carry out one of the most difficult tasks they will ever have to perform. The training includes; the content and delivery of the message, how to manage their emotions during this very challenging procedure as well as how to communicate with the remaining staff.

√ Employee Support

  • To provide support and assistance to the employee who is about to have their life changed dramatically often without any prior indication of what is to come. The consultant can ensure the person has what they need to get home, tell their family and start to focus on going forward by seeing the person within 24 hours of losing their job.

√ Survivor Support

  • To provide survivors in the workplace with an opportunity to deal with the impact of losing one of their coworkers, their emotions often include; fear, anger and survivor guilt. Employees often have questions of how to, or even if they should, reach out to the terminated employee.
  • To send a message to the remaining employees that even though terminations can happen in the workplace, the employer is responsible and provides support in order for the person to go forward.

√ Legal Ramifications

  • To reduce the possibility of lawsuits by getting the former employee focused on the future rather than stuck in anger and getting back at the employer. The ability to meet the terminated employee within 24 hours after the termination is critical for the employee to be able to begin to process the event in a non-destructive manner.
