A major “Key to Success” is being able to navigate through the uncertainty in life. The world is in constant flux; even more so in the last few years with the turbulent times we have been experiencing. People are tapped out at home and at work. Those who have lost their jobs are tapped out trying to find work and deal with all the change they and their families are experiencing.
William Bridges, the author of Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change, introduces a three phase transition model and strategies to help us manage through the transition process more successfully.
- Be clear about what is really ending.
- Let go of old assumptions. Evaluate the situation honestly and objectively.
- Actively seek closure on the “old way”.
