David Noer on Healing the Wounds of Layoffs

Reports of the most recent layoffs are making the front pages of our newspapers with frightening regularity. And massive downsizing continues to reshape the face of American business. But what about those who remain behind? In his updated 2009 edition of Healing the Wounds, David M. Noer, an expert frequently quoted in major media such as The Wall Street Journal and Fortune on the topic of layoffs and layoff survivor sickness, addresses these problems. Drawing on case studies and original research, Healing the Wounds provides executives, human resource professionals, managers, and consultants with an original model and clear guidelines for revitalizing downsized organizations and the employees left behind.

David M. Noer is vice president for training and education for the Center for Creative Leadership. He has consulted extensively both in the United States and abroad, and he is the author of Multinational People Management (1975), How to Beat the Employment Game (1975), and Jobkeeping (1976).
