He stated that he felt as if he had been kicked in the stomach when he found out that he was being terminated from his company. The finance executive had never had to look for a job during his work career until he heard the news. Depressed. Angry. Unable to think. Floundering. Following an initial and confidential meeting to discuss his situation, he determined that he needed a neutral party to help him assess where he was and what he needed to do rather than continue to wallow in self-pity. Ultimately a new business plan was put together along with a plan to market himself in a highly competitive market environment. Because he was now confident and reassured about what was next, he tackled the market with a renewed sense of energy and purpose, ultimately capitalizing on his record of past successes. Today, he is gainfully employed and highly challenged and productive for his new company.  

The sale was completed. She had been an integral part of the growth of the sold business and profited handsomely. However, she was not about to sit on the sidelines.

A firm had just completed a successful merger. The downside was that a number of employees were going to have to be terminated. Because the acquiring firm respected the work of the these individuals, the acquiring firm decided that they would provide transition consulting to the terminated employees. A program was designed to work with the terminated employees in helping them build a new career plan. Group sessions were held that covered those aspects of the career search that were applicable to the group as a whole: resume writing, interviewing skills and techniques, and the general aspects of developing the career and marketing plans. Significant time was set aside for individual, one-on-one consulting. Each employee's individual needs were assessed and plans tailored and developed that were unique to each employee. These confidential conversations enabled the employees to put the past behind them and focus on their futures.
