Whether initiated of your own free will or thrust upon you, change is something that visits us all. With change often comes fear of the unknown, doubt about our ability to adapt, and, inevitably, some form of resistance. Nevertheless, these obstacles can be overcome by following author Nicholas Andrew Depew's step-by-step advice on topics such as the following:
- Knowing when to say when
- Formulating an exit/transition strategy
- Overcoming resistance
- Seeing through the uncertainty
- Avoiding pitfalls
- Leaving a positive legacy
- Taking your experiences with you
These issues are particularly true for those who face transitions of a work-related nature. Whether you are looking for a new job, taking on a new position within your current organization, or beginning the evaluation process of fulfilling a personal dream, there are practical ways in which to carry out your specific transition without unprofessionally severing ties in the process.
Character in Transition: A Guide to Not Burning the Bridge will challenge you to approach the subject of change and the idea of transition from an uncommon point of view. It will ask you to question the norm and expected everyday standards while inviting you to strive for more out of life.
