Recognizing a needed skill can aid job transition

After many successful years as a delivery driver for a large distribution company, George was facing a layoff. As a valued employee, management supported George’s wish to move into a shipper/receiver position for the same company.

The transition was a rocky one. George found the multiple, often conflicting demands from insistent customers difficult to deal with and began experiencing symptoms of extreme stress. An Essential Skills assessment revealed that problem-solving and communication training could help.

Along with communication techniques, George learned a systematic approach to sorting out problems and evaluating priorities, enabling him to cope more effectively with the demands of his new position.
