Continual changes in job security via downsizing, mergers, multi-generational workplace, acquisitions, instability, and change are becoming the norm, and with that come both opportunities and difficulties that are hitting employees faster than ever. Consultant, author Steve Gavatorta says if companies don’t provide relevant skills for this ever-evolving work environment, it could prove costly.
In our fast-paced, ever-evolving world, where change is becoming the norm, learning skills on “how to deal with adversity” in the workplace is greatly needed. Companies that provide such training and development for their employees could indeed provide a competitive advantage for themselves, while driving topline sales, and minimizing unnecessary costs of employee turnover.
In his newly released book, In Defense of Adversity: Turning Your Toughest Challenges Into Your Greatest Success, Steve Gavatorta provides fundamentals that can help employees not only learn “how to deal with adversity” but to also thrive in the face of it.
