A major reason for executive unemployment today is a corporate buyout – and the resulting redundancy. Do you know how to survive such an event?
Surviving ownership change at the executive level requires understanding a new model, a different business philosophy, rotating management structures, churning financial analysis, inverted priorities and confusing strategies. What is the key to survival? Embracing the process? Understanding the shifted strategies? Navigating the confusion? Building within the buyout?
This class will explore the buyout strategy, navigating the changes and surviving the upheaval! Thought and strategy are required to interpret the components of the buyout and make the survival decision. The practical guides discussed in this class will provide you with immediate steps you can use to address your transition phase – within or outside - the buyout structure.
Focusing on the management professional, this presentation assumes an understanding of business processing and functions. The practical advice provided in this webinar are applicable for those in transition, anticipating transition or currently employed.
