Ep #165: How to Continue to Thrive When Everyone Around You is Being Laid Off

You’ve heard the news.

Companies across the world are going through massive layoffs, reorgs, restructuring, and hiring freezes.

You’ve probably experienced this firsthand, too.

And while there may be a lot of information out there for the people who’ve lost their jobs, there isn’t always much support for those leaders who are left behind to pick up the pieces.

So this episode is for the leaders who just had to lay off their top performers or their entire team.

The leaders who were promised a promotion that fell through.

And the leaders who did get promoted, but are still struggling to find something to be positive about.

In this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’ll show you how you can not only survive but thrive during these times of uncertainty.

And if you’re someone who did get laid off, this episode is still for you, too.

Because, chances are, you’ll be hired into another organization where things will still feel uncertain, and this episode will help you show up as the thoughtful, strategic, visionary leader that you are.

Let’s get started.

Want to receive the recognition you deserve, step into a higher leadership position, get paid for your ideas instead of the hours you put in at work, and enjoy more time, freedom, energy, and joy? Then you need to get your hands on a copy of Promotions Made Easy. Get your copy here.
