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.

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.

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