You were doing well in your role and then - WHAAM! A merger or an acquisition has been announced. Now, you are facing uncertainty and, depending on how things unfold, employment at risk. On one hand, you want to position yourself well for potential internal opportunities that may emerge with the upcoming reorganization. On the other hand, you want to mitigate the risk and gain some leverage by selectively exploring new positions outside. Eventually, you maybe even be asked for an updated resume to retain your current role.

We can coach you through situational analysis and establish right balance with honest feedback and reality-grounded expectations.
