After more than a week of scanning my e-mail for
a hoped for message, I finally saw "I'm alive" Lyn Stabler.
What a sweet message. After a week of worrying about a 20-year friend
and colleague from Bay St. Louis, Mississippi (recently wiped out
by Katrina) I got the news that she, her family and cat were OK,
home was flooded and that they'd be living up near Jackson, MS for
the time being.
In my message back to her, I remembered that the
last article she had written for me was about how people dealt with
drastic change and she's used the metaphor of moving into the eye
of the storm, since work change often hit people or felt like being
in a hurricane. And the more I though about it, what she had found
out working with people through restructuring, downsizing (including
her own) was what many city, state and federal managers needed to
know for managing their relationships with victims of Katrina.
It is not surprising that Lyn is better able to
handle her current situation because of her previous experience
of helping people live through hurricanes at work. I highly recommend
it to you. Ned Hamson
