Description
Job Survival Today Pragmatic advice on job survival too often concentrates on merely looking good for your boss. Including being visible and networking, providing feedback and two way communication, raising solutions and not just problems, seeking personal development opportunities, and importantly, not being branded a moaner. But the challenges have now shifted pace, weight and direction. Job survival today is not just personal vibes with your employer. Nor is it limited to the relevance of what you do, or even how well you do it. Your attitude towards everyone you come into contact with is equally and demonstratively vital. Requiring: Balance. This timely e-book covers a complex subject. Sure, flick through it to get the general flow of where you are heading. But we are dealing with your financial success, your contentment, and your happiness. Job survival is a means to an end; a very personal end. Job survival is a balance between your work and all the other aspects of your life. So give it the attention it deserves. Your job survival influences your choice of lifestyle. And your lifestyle influences your job survival. Mutual reinforcement conditions the outcome. Pursue and master this reciprocal balance. Understanding You are misplacing the goal and wasting your time if you attempt to charge through all the chapters in only two or three sessions. Each requires very careful thought and reference to your particular circumstances. Be honest with yourself and give yourself time and place to digest and thoroughly absorb the suggestions being made. And the conclusions you reach. Break your study of each chapter into chunks. Blue headings sections by sections perhaps? Or whatever segments you prefer. One technique for internalising the process is to rehearse each segment as if you were a mentor to someone else. Coaching them in your own words. Tailored to their, and the local, situation. So make measured progress through this e-book. You have got ready access to the entire contents through whatever tablet or mobile devices, and apps that you prefer. Or sync. This book provides recognition, reference, revision and reinforcement readily on tap! Commitment Change in the 21st century is a permanent challenge. You cannot escape it. The trick is to use it to your advantage. You must not only cope with it – for job survival today you must master it. This is not a singular exercise. It requires continuing confident commitment. Interdependent with, and upon, the reactions of others. Don’t let yourself down before you even begin. So commit to this task. Your balanced attitude is key. Scope Ten chapters address a range of practical job survival attributes including detailed attention to The Challenge, Analysing Situations and Solution Search, Decision Planning, Ready for Change, Reading People, Systems Collapse, and a wide range of factors external and internal to the enterprise. Equipping you, and the enterprise, to take effective action. The widespread reality is that for a number of reasons - including social, the global and local economic systems, technological and political - job survival will continue to be a major and ongoing personal challenge for most of us. We have to learn to cope with it. Your task is to take the initiative and enable yourself to survive under these circumstances, and then prosper. Are there any positives in all this? In spite of the situation and because of the openings it presents? Yes - these circumstances breed opportunities. Grab them. Job Survival Today will put you, and keep you, on track.
