Pink slipped.... beat tha

  1. 1. PINK Slipped? Call it in whatever name, what earlier was a rarity, is now passé! A few words on how to beat the PINK SLIP and keep YOU going…
  2. 2. Beat that PINK slip… else it beats you <ul><li>The first thing that comes to your mind (or anyone’s mind when you get pink-slipped… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>WHY ME, WHY ME….???? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Stop breast-beating and self sympathizing, for god sake, and YOUR sake. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Cardinal rule when Pinkslipped! (Chat this mantra to yourself, over and over again) <ul><li>This is nothing to do with ME or MY CAPABILITIES. </li></ul><ul><li>I AM THE BEST AND I REMAIN THE BEST!! </li></ul>
  4. 4. Pink Slipping… has nothing to do with YOU <ul><li>Think about this…. THINK…. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>FACT – the organization thought you fit for the role in which you were… right till this moment! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>FACT – you were hired, and have been doing what you were doing till this minute, only coz’ you were COMPETENT – Yeah, COMPETENT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>FACT – the decision to pink-slip you and so many others like you is due to extraneous reasons, for which you were not even remotely responsible….. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Tough times… but YOUR solution is on hand… INSIDE YOU! <ul><li>There’s no shying away from the fact that times are tough when you are ‘pink-slipped’ </li></ul><ul><li>Cool it off, and simply focus on the options/alternatives </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(you say, easier said than done; IT’S EASY – DECIDE TO FOCUS ONLY ON THE POSITIVES ) </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. What remains… …. just about everything … <ul><li>REMEMBER THIS…. (mantra again) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>YOU HAVE ONLY BEEN PINKSLIPPED OUT OF THIS JOB…. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ALL ELSE IS IN YOUR HAND.. CAREER, LIFE… AND JOY & HAPPINESS…. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Stay focused on the BIG POSITIVES! <ul><li>More important, focus on the POSITIVE SIDE of LIFE now… caring parents, loving spouse and kids, great friends…. </li></ul><ul><li>Take the break to… hone yourself as a better person…. Reposition you, re-package you… Think…. </li></ul><ul><li>A lot of times, pink-slips have been blessing in disguise – for RE-INVENTING THE SELF. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Something to ponder… SERIOUS THINKING ! <ul><li>Check out your own skills inventory, and passion.. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Have you been doing what you would do even without getting paid? If so, your work is art, and in no time you will get choices on hand…. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(sounds theory, but true… most of us rote in a job, not realizing our true capabilities , until we are struck by the pinkslip thunder!) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Stay AWAY from…. <ul><li>Stay away from any sort of negativity…. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>So called well-wishers, who have nothing but negativity to spew….. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>From the newspaper and television, which mostly thrive on breaking negative news…. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Friends or Relatives who may just sympathize , and make things worse… </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Nourish your MIND with positives… <ul><li>Make positive thinking a conscious choice in the times when you are PINK-SLIPPED… </li></ul><ul><li>Your MIND remains alert and looks for options when it is POSITIVE…. </li></ul><ul><li>Turn to great audio-books, speeches, good books, lovely music… all this will soothe, helping to increase your mind-power </li></ul>
  11. 11. Looking for choices…. <ul><li>It’s important to keep your eyes open for opportunities…. </li></ul><ul><li>Network with the right people, have an ear on the ground, and try to push you for discussions, on the basis of your capabilities. </li></ul><ul><li>BE THERE… by this, I mean you have to be in the place where people hire…. companies, seminars, symposiums… </li></ul>
  12. 12. Some soft choices…..…. <ul><li>PERSISTENCE….You just cant be beaten if you have this quality in you… </li></ul><ul><li>PERSIST till you get the right break… </li></ul><ul><li>Maintain poise and peace in the interim period, until the break…. </li></ul><ul><li>Nourish yourself, your relationships, your family…. It’s the best time to do this! </li></ul>
  13. 13. and…. Re-invent YOU, every minute…. <ul><li>Stay on course, FOCUS on what you ought to be </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NOT what happened in the past and what was not possible… </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Spend every minute in re-positioning you, re-evaluating choices and career options </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Always bear your competency bouquet in mind… a lot of times, most of us don’t do… </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. ..the world has changed…! <ul><li>In this new world, there is nothing like job-security… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Things are changing so fast, and the company cannot be on a social cause mode, bothering about how to keep you! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>YOU have to fend for yourself… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And this you can do by staying hungry for knowledge, honing your personal skills, leadership traits, increasing your ‘circle of competence’…. </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. YOU CAN…. Always! <ul><li>By being in a mindset to beat the pink-slip, you will always emerge a winner! </li></ul><ul><li>Stay hungry for more…in knowledge, do-ability, new frontiers, new skills… by staying current you will always BEAT the pink slip…. </li></ul>
