Transition – It’s a Process

February 10, 2021​​

Transitions are hard – and let’s be honest – recently we’ve faced more transitions than many of us care for.  Author and transition expert, William Bridges, reminds us that transition is a process with 3 stages:  Ending, Neutrality, and New Beginnings.  Every good process takes time, and this is true of the Transition Process. 

Do you see yourself in one of these 3 stages?  We encourage you to take some time to identify your stage, reflect on where you’ve been, and set goals around how you can positively contribute to your role in the transition you are experiencing.  

 “We come to new beginnings only at the end” – William Bridges
