What’s your Plan B?

Turn adversity into your benefits

If you get fired today or if your company goes bankrupt next week, are you prepared for that? Or you think “this will never happen to me”?

Change is the only thing that is constant. This means the technology can become redundant, jobs can become redundant, trends can change overnight. Adversity can also mean a sudden loss of a job, reorganization, automation, digitization, or the bankruptcy of a company; the list is endless.

Innovating is the only way forward. Every industry, be it banking, information technology, aviation, service, food, or even emerging start-ups have either adapted to change or failed.

Changing times need us to be future-ready at all times, as companies and as individuals. So, what should we do when adversity creeps into our perfect little world? (hits you in the face?)

The answer is simple: “Have a Plan B!”

The “B” in Plan B stands for Backup. Plan B is to make yourself ready to face the unforeseen crisis head-on. This book will help you create a backup plan, so when the tough time arrives, you’ll be prepared and able to steer yourself across the perils of adversity.

With feedback, comments and stories from 20 experts and leaders from various sectors, countries and situations, I have created a Plan B framework. A four-step approach to how to face adversity, create a plan B and make changes today.

When you have a Plan B, you can convert from a pink slip to the pink of condition. But you need to start preparing today.
