How Will I Survive Getting Fired?

On What’s Your Work Fit we pose this viewer question: How Will I Survive Getting Fired?

Answering that question and others is our guest, Christian Stein.

Christian is a global ad agency guy turned brand transformer and therapist at his company, Stone Owl Consulting.

This week’s lead question was posed by What’s Your Work Fit? viewer Ryan:

At the beginning of Fourth Quarter 2023, Ryan was let go from his senior marketing manager job at a large regional home repair services company. He’d worked hard to advance his career and he seemed to be on track for a big promotion before the end of the 2023 fiscal year.

But now as a corporate cast-off he has no idea of what to do next and his self-confidence has taken a big hit. What is more, Ryan is feeling pressure to reconnect with a job (any job) because his cash-reserves likely won’t last more than six months.

Now Ryan asks: how will I survive getting fired?

During this information packed episode, we discover Christian’s answer to the question “what’s your work fit?’ His personal vision surely will resonate with many career professionals.
