Redundancy is hard. There’s no two ways about it. But what you do - or don’t do - after it can make all the difference to your future.
I’ve written before that a redundancy ‘signals a chance to assess your lifestyle’. It’s a time for you to really think hard about what you want next from your career, and how you’re going to make that happen.
Think of it like a game of chess; if you rush right into your next move then there’s a high chance you’ll lose your competitive advantage. But if you step back and take the time to asses the playing board, you’ll be setting yourself up for success.
Career coaching is the best thing you can do for yourself in the days and weeks following a redundancy. It gives you the time and space to reflect, assess, and plan your next move.
If you’ve been made redundant then it’s likely your company will offer you career coaching as a part of your package - but you must make sure the package works for you. You need to work with someone who understands you, your career, your goals, and what you want your future to look like.
At Leap into HR Consulting® we pride ourselves on the fact that our approach is tailored and personal.
We take the time to delve into your career goals and motivation, as well as the time to step back and look at the bigger picture.
We ask: what do you want from work and from life, right now and in 10+ years time.
We work with you to reach an understanding about how to best play your next move in order to get to where you want to be.
If you’ve recently been made redundant and have the opportunity for a career coaching outplacement - we’d love to talk.
Whether you’re coming from a corporate or a small business, together we can find the right course of action for you.
There are so many stories and chapters to be told out there in the working world. Don’t think of redundancy as the end - it’s the beginning of your next chapter.
Together, we’ll make sure it’s a good one.
