(STUDY FINDS) — NOTRE DAME, Ind. — In the workplace, hitting rock bottom can sometimes be the best way to find your way back to the top. A study by researchers at the University of Notre Dame found that when people fail in business and lose their job, they’re actually given a rare opportunity to find the long-sought path that will lead them to recovery.
That’s because often times, employees find themselves drowning in their struggles for extended periods of times before finally losing their footing for good. It’s only then that they can either choose to remain mired in dysfunction or seek out a new, clear road to higher ground.
