As my subject line suggests, I have just had the experience of going through late stage coaching from the employee perspective. I am/was a low level manager with 3 direct reports and I am 10 years out of B-school. This employer was my third in the 10 years and I have been employed by them for 6.
The cause for termination was explained as "not demonstrating an appropriate level of leadership for a manager with my position and tenure". My take is that I was no longer perceived as fitting the desired management profile of my employer.
I have three specific questions.
First, how do you suggest that this be handled on a resume.
Second, I'd like to hear your thoughts on dealing with the inevitable "why did you leave Employer X ?" during the upcoming interview process.
Third, do you have any suggested reading or other strategies to help me cope with the situation Im in.
Thank You for your response.
