Redundancy. It’s a big topic for a lot of people at the moment.

This episode is the first in a series of interviews exploring redundancy and what it means for different people. Every story is unique, whether you’re at the very beginning, in the messy middle, or are now embarking on something new – there is no right or wrong way to do it!

Being made redundant, especially when it’s unexpected, can make you feel lost, taken aback and unsure of what to do next. However, it is sometimes when all of our safety nets are taken away that we finally take that leap of faith into the unknown.

Jon’s redundancy story is a wonderful example of exactly that.

In this episode we are joined by the fantastic Jon Seymour who kindly shares with us how he tackled his own redundancy. Showing us that it is sometimes when all of our safety nets are taken away that we finally take that leap of faith into the unknown.

Whether you are going through, or have been through a redundancy, or even if you’ve never encountered redundancy, I know many different aspects of these interviews will resonate with you and provide you with some invaluable insights and inspiration to take away.

As we talk through Jon’s journey we will cover:

  • What comes next (& there’s a lot of choices you can make here!)
  • Looking at the Support Circles you have around you.
  • Reframing your own personal idea of what success looks like.
  • And long-term vs short-term short term planning.
