Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every day the newspapers report more corporate mergers and restructuring. Every day thousands of lives are altered by these changes. Most managers and employees, however, do not have the experience to effectively work through such transitions. In Managing Transitions, William Bridges provides a clear understanding of what change does to employees and what employees in transition can do to an organization, and he shows how to minimize the distress and disruptions caused by change.

Directed at managers and employees in today's corporations, where change is necessary to revitalize and improve corporate performance, Managing Transitions addresses the fact that it is people who have to carry out the change. It not only talks about what should be done, but also shows how to do it, giving managers practical ways to bring the people "on board." Armed with this new information, managers will look at future changes in a new way, no longer feeling anxious and hopeless, but rather looking at opportunities.

Everybody talks about "managing change" and "resistance to change," but Bridges is the first to talk about what is going on inside the people who have to make the change work. He is the first to provide any real sense of the emotional impact of change and what can be done to keep it from disrupting the entire organization. Bridges's years of experience helping organizations and individuals successfully take control of change has proven the need for specific, concrete guidelines for dealing with change. Managing Transitions provides these guidelines.

Synopsis:

A practical guide to help managers and employees understand and successfully cope with organizational change.
