No doubt, you probably have heard out the elephant in the room. The elephant represents the issue or situation that no one wants to talk about but everyone knows it exists. The longer you remain silent, the bigger the elephant grows until…something gives…and then it gets ugly.

A good friend of mine asked if I would talk to a job seeker group down at the NYS Department of Labor/RochesterWorks! organization. The focus of our “elephant” discussion will be on job search – the frustrations, stress and pain. What’s really bothering you that you can’t talk about with your spouse, significant other or friend?

I’ll take the group through a process where you can reveal your “elephant” and we’ll brainstorm how to make your situation get better. Hopefully, your “elephant” will find another place to take up space because you’ll have a new outlook or solution to implement.

Don’t worry about confidentiality; I’ll lead the session so that you don’t have to reveal who said what…unless you want to. You might be surprised at how many people have the same elephants in their lives!
