LONG-TERM BENEFITS OF RECESSION-PROOFING STRATEGIES
=====================================================

With more businesses and individual workers seeking ways to “recession-
proof” themselves, could the economy emerge from hard times stronger
and more innovative than ever?

Recession-proofing workers might focus on becoming more fearless and
innovative. Take your ideas to the boss rather than allow uncertainties
to back you into your cubicle, urges Robin Fisher Roffer, author of THE
FEARLESS FISH OUT OF WATER (Wiley, 2009). “It may seem scary to make
such a bold move in tenuous times,” she says, “but leaders will
appreciate any innovation that will get business moving right now.”

Businesses, too, are encouraged to be fearlessly proactive rather than
cautious and reactive. Hard times are the time for action, suggests
consultant Suzanne Caplan, because inaction “spawns a pattern of
victimization, and pins us down into a habit of only reacting to the
bad, instead of planning for the better.”
