  Keys to Strengthening Buy-in, Trust and Team Coordination in a Generationally-Culturally Diverse (Military) Workforce
by Mark Gorkin - Jul, 2010
I'm preparing for a major offsite event with the Command Teams of the 1st Cavalry/Ft. Hood, TX. I've been asked to explore new (for me) conceptual territory -- Generational Diversity. More specifically, the Army wants me to provide some fresh ideas and exercises for "Communicating with the Younger Soldier." To oversimplify matters: how can the predominant generations in authority -- the Traditionals and Boomers -- connect wi...
 
  Letting Go of RIF-ed Off Rage: Survival Stages & Strategies for Soon-to-Be Terminated Employees
by Mark Gorkin - Apr, 2010
One way I know that the economy is still in trouble is by speaking topic requests: a) recently I wrote about an after-dinner presentation on “Letting Go” for a career transition support group; to be tactful, many folks were “in between” jobs and b) two weeks ago I led a program on managing stress for county government employees who, due to budget cuts, have either been notified of a specific future termination date or know th...
 
  In Challenging Times, No More “Inner Child”: Boldly Bring Your Inner Chutzpah
by Mark Gorkin - Feb, 2010
Over lunch, my agent posed a provocative challenge: “Write an article on chutzpah.” He believes the timing is right. In this difficult economy and uncertain times it’s certainly tempting to withdraw into a shell. But a better strategy might be a contrary one, throwing off the shell and putting yourself out there. One “chutzpah” source involves productively tapping into what I call the “RAGE” in “Out-RAGE-ous.” (And these...
 
  Laughing in the Face of Layoffs
by Mark Gorkin - Feb, 2010
"How can the person displaced or downsized see both the danger and opportunity in career change or disruption? Can we learn, even, to both cry and laugh at this career crisis turning point?" To be able to see the comic in the crisis requires two achievements. First we must embrace Charlie Chaplin's penetrating insight: "A paradoxical thing is that in making comedy the tragic is precisely what arouses the funny...we have...
 
  Managing a Critical Aggressor: Case Example
by Mark Gorkin - Sep, 2009
Let’s try a mind exercise. You’ve just given a presentation at an important meeting. As the meeting concludes you turn to a colleague (a casual acquaintance) and ask, “How did the presentation go?” And in a decidedly judgmental and unfriendly tone this colleague declares, “Frankly, you fumbled the data. Obviously, you didn’t prepare very well!” Imagine being the presenter. How would you feel receiving such critical fee...
 
  Discovering Your Passion Through Humble Practice and Outrageous Play
by Mark Gorkin - Jan, 2009
Setting the stage for the dramatic close of my Practice Safe Stress program with the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Dentistry faculty and staff, I declared, "Find something you love to do, that you are truly passionate about. Some will find it at work, others will need to explore outside of work. And I believe you get the most mood elevation and sense of meaning when it's an activity that allows for genuine s...
 
  Six Strategic 'F's for Mastering Loss and Change
by Mark Gorkin - Jan, 2009
1) Familiar. Grapple with the anxiety, rage, hopelessness or sadness in letting go of the familiar role or predictable past. The big question: Who am I? Remember, sometimes your former niche of success now has you mostly stuck in the ditch of excess. There's a critical crossroad ahead. 2) Future. Clearly the horizon appears cloudy and threatening, lacking direction and clarity. Just because your past or traditional roles...

  A Stress Survival Guide for HR Professionals
by Mark Gorkin - Jun, 2006
In today’s 24/7, merging, consolidating, “do more with less” work environment, the letters “HR” could as easily stand for “Hub of Reorganization” as for “Human Resources.” In fact, it’s the intersection of the two organizational dynamics, human exchange and systemic change, that accounts for the challenge and performance pressure for the HR manager and other human resources professionals. A person, over time, is confronted...
 
  Five Keys for Managing Change and Reducing Burnout
by Mark Gorkin - Jun, 2006
One sure source of short-term distress and a potential source of burnout in the long run is denying, minimizing, avoiding and/or resisting the realities of a changing organizational climate. A capacity for modifying mindsets and operational policies and procedures is essential. A defensive or dysfunctionally self-protective posture winds up draining valuable mental and emotional energy, constricts risk-taking and creative prob...
