I need your help to give an advice for a friend of mine, who used to work as a Program Director at my current firm. He is really a successful person and I kind of appreciate his personality, attitude towards his team members and his understanding work ethics. Unfortunately, he kind of found himself in opposition with our General Manager about certain aspects of work processes and resigned from his job. Since then, he has difficulty in finding job because of the rumors about his resignation, probably because of our GM. He asked my advice for being an HR person and I just suggested him to come to terms with our GM. But he is such an idealist person and does not willing to do that. He is soo behind his argument and approaching to the GM would mean to concede. On the other hand, our GM is such a nice person and I do not think he would think that way. In addition he used to love and value him a lot.
I would be really grateful if you could give me some suggestions as he is married and has one child. In short, he needs a job.
Thank you so much in advance,
