According to Dr. Minnick, this book is not simply the musings of experienced consultants or a simple list of “success skills,” covering the same tired concepts. “‘Survive Downsizing’ is drawn from the real-life experiences of those in a unique position to know: real survivors of organization resizing and the hiring managers who selected them.”
Surveys in dozens of organizations ranging from Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurial start-ups are the basis of Dr. Minnick’s success model. Each chapter relays unique, essential facts and guidance on what to do in a time of employment crisis.
“The take-home message here is that it’s not only what you know that makes a difference in organization survival, it’s how you apply that knowledge,” he said. Every chapter is filled with applications, exercises, and suggested ways to put each of the skills into practice in the workplace.
The book includes self-assessment surveys for each survival skill to help employees identify and build on their survival strengths. In addition, worksheets and planning guides are included to help map out a strategy to become indispensable.
