A personal catastrophe can manifest in a professional`s life either physically or mentally, either suddenly or progressively. Its effects can be short-term or long-term, or even permanent.A personal catastrophe will affect abilities to perform professionally for clients and to meet business obligations. Personal catastrophes also affect co-workers and family members. Yet, with targeted treatments, a support system, and thoughtful, optimistic strategies, professional recovery and personal readjustment is achievable.
