Redundancy

This book is intended for anyone who has been, or is being, made redundant.

It explains how redundancy is a natural process in today’s modern world, and nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of.

It gives practical, sage advice on how to approach redundancy, and how to put it in proportion and perspective.

Written in a readable, flowing and pithy style, this book provides peace of mind and explains how redundancy is not something to be feared, but a true lifetime, golden opportunity.

About the Author:

Paul Williams is a consultant, author and speaker, specialising in organisational culture, transition management, team dynamics, individual behaviour and collaborative working.

His disarmingly readable style marks him out as a uniquely effective author, willing to address the issues concerned with people, and building high performance teams.  Using his inimitable, pithy style he has tackled the thorny subject of redundancy in a succinct, readable and empathetic way.

Excerpt from the book:

“Being made redundant can come as a terrible shock, and be seen as an almost fatal personal blow.  It can set loose a tide of despair which, if left unarrested, can result in a self-fulfilling prophecy of personal failure.

It needn’t be like that!

This short book has been written for those who are facing the threat of redundancy, those who have been made redundant, or indeed anyone – be it a friend, family member, colleague or manager – who know someone who is facing what they will perceive as a daunting process.

Hopefully reading this book will help everyone to realise that redundancy should not be the harbinger of personal failure, but be perceived as a real and genuine golden opportunity.”

Review on Amazon for this book:

Wordly Traveller

5.0 out of 5 stars  Change is good

27 November 2020

“With the coronavirus lockdown and unemployment increasing in general, it’s a difficult time for many of us. What I particularly like about this book is it’s written in a colloquial way which makes the advice provided really easy to understand and follow. The author has many years of business experience and shares his commercial expertise by encouraging us to see being made redundant as an opportunity for change and personal growth, which is a good thing and not something to be feared or loathed.

They say the measure of a person is how they deal with change and move forward. This book guides us on how to do so.

If you’re facing redundancy, pick up this book and give it a read. It’ll help you realise the opportunity that change provides, both in term of understanding the possibilities and fulfilling your potential.”

Abigail Bear – The Lockdown

Abigail is a little bear – with a big love of dance. She loves to dance with her friends at Madame Swan’s dance school, and she really enjoys telling her class all about it at school.

So, what will happen when both her dance class and her school must close suddenly, without warning? Will Abigail ever get used to the new normal?

A heart-warming story of hope and resilience – even in the toughest of times.

About the Author:

Shona Stringer is a Mum to three children (Abigail, Toby & Jude), and a Dance Teacher/Principal of ZEST Dance Studios in Leeds.

During lockdown#1 2020, Shona decided to write a short story for her younger students, as it was becoming apparent many were struggling with the confusion of their newly-imposed normal. They were missing their friends & family as well as missing their school and dance lessons.

Abigail Bear is the dance studio mascot and has been loved for many years by generations of dancers. Shona hopes now that Abigail can bring more joy and happiness to children far and wide.

Excerpt from the book:

“She went to her bedroom, lay on her bed, and thought about what Mummy Bear had said.  She didn’t really want a new normal; she was quite happy with her old normal, so why did things have to change?

She turned over to look at the photographs next to her – all of Abigail in her sparkly costumes and tutus.  She missed her dancing friends, too.”

“Abigail Bear – The Lockdown”by Shona Stringer is available in paperback from Book Depository and Amazon at:
