Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change

William Bridges, Susan Bridges

In the ever-changing business world, external changes like reorganizations, mergers, and layoffs impact workplaces, triggering the need for individuals to adapt. However, it is the internal psychological transitions that truly captivate our attention. In Managing Transitions, Bridges distinguishes between "change" and "transition." Change is the external force that happens around us, while transition is the psychological process of dealing with change. This insightful book highlights that while change is inevitable, our internal reactions to it can be challenging. The author presents three stages of transition: ending, where we let go of the past; the neutral zone, a space of confusion and possibility; and new beginnings, marked by a renewed sense of energy and readiness. By understanding these stages, readers can navigate transitions, embrace uncertainty, and unlock new opportunities amidst change.
