"As we approach the new year there are millions of American men who find themselves in a unique place and one that they are neither accustomed to nor particularly comfortable with.
Because of the massive downturn in the economy and a global shift that has taken place in the emerging working environment, many men find themselves downsized, laid off, no longer qualified to meet the current demands of the workplace or simply desiring something very different than what they have done for many years.
Simultaneously there are more women successfully employed in a marriage where the husband is no longer the primary bread winner and in fact may not be contributing any income. This leaves many men experiencing a new sense of vulnerability, confusion, self doubt and pain without the tools and perspective of how to cope with their new reality.
In many cases men are attempting to look back at their history for guidance and answers to their dilemma and continue to use the old assumptions that worked so well in the past. Meanwhile they are living in a radically new economic paradigm that presents a challenge they find most difficult to cope with.
Their roles as husband and provider are very much in question and this leads to much stress for both the husband and wife, in many cases the traditional roles being reversed. The wife now is the bread winner and the center of income for the family and the husband is somewhat lost as to his place in the relationship with his wife and his family.
This creates much uncertainty for men and a lack of clarity of how to regain their foothold.
There is a silver lining to this new phenomenon if men are willing to consider thinking in a new way and shifting their perspective.
The good news is that there is an opportunity for men to rebuild their careers. With a new personal vision coupled with actionable steps men can regain their power and boldly move ahead while creatively discovering a new professional path that is both satisfying and productive.
Wives welcome the opportunity for their husbands to rediscover their inner strengths and passions and strongly encourage them to take the risk of exploring this unknown territory that lies ahead.
Professional coaching can be the bridge that allows these lost men to find the clarity they seek and a map to a renewed sense of their own self worth. "
