Facing Redundancy: Surviving and Thriving by Jenny Rogers
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Another lively and highly informative book from Jenny Rogers. As always, the clarity and directness of the writing makes it effortless to read. In this inspiring take on what could be a downbeat subject, the subtitle sets the tone: surviving and thriving.
This is a timely and extremely practical book. It takes an honest look at the challenges of unemployment, offers practical advice, and suggests a range of strategies for taking control of one’s own prospects. From how to cope with the emotional shock of redundancy, to managing on a temporarily reduced income, to rebranding oneself for the job market, there’s a lot to be learned from every chapter.

I am in the process of designing an online masters degree in knowledge-based coaching and mentoring and, again, Jenny's book is on my required reading list. You will not find a more readable, more intelligent, or more comprehensive book on coaching and coaching skills. It is a rare treat to find a book that describes coaching, the skills involved, and the coaching… Read more
