No matter what you call it, the end result is the same - the loss of a job. With the world plunged into economic turmoil and uncertainty, New Zealanders are bracing themselves for the fallout. Employers and employees are anxious about predictions of multiple job losses in 2009, and this timely, up-to-the-minute, and practical workbook charts a course through the unknown. In a clearly written style, Kathryn takes the reader through the three main sections of the workbook: Review, Plan, Act. She lists essential resources such as relevant book titles, websites and online tools, and provides guidance on selecting a professional coach, as well as a daily planner template and exercises.

The many case studies emphasise her point that the redundancy experience and preferred outcomes are different for every individual. This essential workbook is peppered with helpful charts, worksheets, graphs and diagrams, and is packed with useful information.
