Exploring the Land beyond the Horizon

A program for when employment has become insecure
Exploring the land beyond the horizon
Suddenly your job becomes insecure. How would that affect you? Job insecurity often is a major source of stress, certainly at a later age and with a long history of being employed in that organization. This stress interferes with performance on the job, the capabilities to find another job and also affects the functioning of your colleagues whose jobs are not at stake.

The one day workshop ‘Exploring the Land beyond the Horizon’ addresses the stress responses inherent in job insecurity and what can be done about them. Also it involves an exploration of the participants’ strong points as well as a first exploration of their different options. This sets them free to look around for another job more effectively, inside or outside the organization.
