Desirable Options When an Employee Isn’t Working Out …

This week I spoke with Erin Hamilton, the founder of  MOGL Small Business Services.  MOGL helps the owners of growing, small and medium-sized businesses with business development, operations, and systems.  We spoke about my take on pre-outplacement services. Basically, outplacement is career coaching that is paid for by a former employer when an employee is (or will be) let go. My approach to pre-outplacement is different because it is based on career psychology. It’s also different because of the context in which I’ve offered it.

 

Erin shared a snapshot of our discussion in a “30-second learning” article.

30 Second Learning on Outplacement

Here’s an excerpt:

A professional development coach not only helps top employees reach greater heights, but they also help unhappy / under-performing employees – many of whom would thrive in a different role.

In a future post, I’ll describe my take on Outplacement v2.0 or “Right-Placement” in more detail.

 

In the meantime, please contact me by email, phone, or via direct message on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn if you’d like to discuss outplacement, careers, or other HR-related topics in more detail.

 

More than career coaching, it’s career psychology®.

But, when we’re unlucky, corporate psychopaths do walk among us. They can have an extremely detrimental impact on their peers and people who report to them, and can hurt the organization for which they work. There are also other things happening to some of us that make for scary work situations.

The Big Quit Continues: Why Employees are Unhappy at Work

Job dissatisfaction is at an all-time high. Despite fears of a recession, the Big Quit is still underway, with more and more people quitting their jobs in search of something better. I’ve written previously about the Big Quit phenomenon, and how the uncertainty of the pandemic has impacted our work-related choices. Certainly, wages are a major factor in this decision-making process. With the cost of living rising and wages not keeping pace, it’s no wonder that people are looking for greener pastures. But there’s one key factor that’s driving a lot of churn in organizations …

Black Psychology – What is it and why is it important?

While largely unknown, Black Psychology as a discipline has an established history. As a graduate student, Dr. Helen stumbled upon a book called Black Psychology (Third Edition) which was published in 1991. The book addressed the need to develop a Black perspective on the conceptualization, research, and practice of Psychology.
