Envisioning a Successful Transition

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In our constantly changing world, we go through many transitions over a course of 5 years. Job changes. Life changes. Relationship changes. Family changes. This list could go on and on, especially during the Corona virus pandemic.

A while back, William Bridges came up with a model to help individuals and organizations to help people with change. In this session, we will look at the Bridges model of Endings, Transition, and New Beginning and explore creativity tools that can help us with each of the stages. We will consider the model in light of personal changes (rather than team or organizational changes).

During the session, we will explore the model and then identify a part of our life where change is currently happening. We will talk about and apply creativity tools to help us “manage” these changes with sensitivity and effectiveness.

Personal changes might include such situations as:
  • Having a newborn in the house
  • Moving to a new location
  • Retiring
  • Working remotely
  • Finding a new job
  • Losing your job
  • Anything else that represents change for you during this pandemic

What will you learn or experience as a result of this program or session?
  • To explore a change model for personal change
  • To discover creativity tools that will help explore the change model
  • To use the change model with a change occurring in your personal life
