Here are my top ten pointers for what to do if you’ve just had a career setback. Perhaps you went for a promotion and didn’t get the job; perhaps somebody else was appointed over you; perhaps you’ve even been demoted to a lower position. Perhaps the failure was something of your own doing - you underperformed - you messed up - or you failed to do the job people expected of you. Perhaps you got caught with your fingers in the till, so to speak. Rather than getting drunk and blaming it all on those “sons of bitches in the office”, a more helpful and adaptive way of coping could be what you need.
