On Your Own. Not Alone

Thriving in the “New Normal” of Today’s Job Market


Times are tough, but that doesn’t mean that we should be negative about our prospects for earning a good income and enjoying satisfaction from our work.  In this presentation, Hugh Taylor, who survived a mid-life layoff from a Fortune 500 company, explores ways that we can discover our true strengths and find a path to thriving in the “New Normal” of today’s job market.  Blending wisdom, humor, and practical insights, Hugh Taylor gives encouragement to audiences that want to move forward in their careers in a difficult economic climate.

  • Defining the “New Normal” of today.
  • Addressing the reality: You’re on your own. But, you’re not alone.
  • Believing that you can thrive today.
  • Practical steps to thriving in the “New Normal”
