Martha Stewart’s survival secret

by on
in Firing,Human Resources

Whether you’re a fan of Martha Stewart or not, you have to admit that she knows how to survive. When accused of insider trading, she didn’t wait for it to blow over. Instead, she set up a web site and put ads in newspapers to fight the charges.

 The result: Sherwin-Williams and the other retailers that distributed her product lines never left her side.

Lesson: If a career disaster happens, don’t sit and wait for people to help you. Tell your side of the story forcefully, instead.

— Adapted from Firing Back: How Great Leaders Rebound After Career Disasters, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Harvard Business School Press.
