Michael Froehls, a former successful global executive, turns conventional wisdom upside down - he suggests that you should overcome your reflex to immediately look for the next job after losing one. Don't miss out on your chance to do things you never had time for while being employed. Why not pursue a few activities that really matter to you before continuing your hard 30- to 40-year-long working life? Why not realize some lifelong travel dreams, improve your health, invest in family and friends, fire up your love life, acquire new job skills, or check out a different location for a better career?
In this book, you will find practical advice on how to take advantage of your opportunity without regret. Written from a business perspective with philosophical underpinnings, enriched by personal stories and serious thought-provoking questions, The Gift of Job Loss will help you:
* Understand the "Job Seeker Industrial Complex" and its influence on you * Revitalize your life via 7 no-regret and up to 8 optional activities * Identify personal and professional strategic options hitherto unavailable * Optimize your "game of life" - living now vs. living in the future * Analyze the implications of an economic recession vs. boom for your time off * Plan your own step-by-step course of action - whether you are about to be let go, just got laid-off, or are still "safely" employed
After losing his corporate job, Michael decided to sidestep the recession by doing what he advocates in this book. Headhunters, former colleagues, and friends called his move and timing a very smart decision - though few would dare because of convention and apprehension. If you face job loss, reading this book should help you overcome any despair and make you see your situation in a much more positive light.
