How can I get executives to start thinking strategically about some of the personnel moves they're making?

"Like everyone else, we're having to make some hard decisions about staffing. I accept that. What I can't accept is the haphazard way my company is doing this. People are making cuts department by department, project by project and budget by budget. When the recession ends, I'm afraid we'll be so gutted we won't be able to recover. What can I do now to help our executives think long term even as they deal with short-term business needs?"—Tess, Maryland

Are they laying off based on seniority, skill set (or lack thereof) or perhaps perfomance? I would ask to hold on to the people with the best skill set for the job (both present and future) and the industry you’re in. Those with good perfomance would be next on the “retain” list. For that group, I would ask them to learn the skills they’ll need.

Just a few talking points…
