Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The business world is a place of constant change, with stories of corporate mergers, layoffs, bankruptcy, and restructuring hitting the news every day. Yet as veteran consultant William Bridges maintains, the situational changes are not as difficult for companies to make as the psychological transitions. In the best-selling Managing Transitions, Bridges provides a clear understanding of what change does to employees and what employees in transition can do to an organization. Directed at managers and employees in today's corporations, Bridges shows how to minimize the distress and disruptions caused by change. Managing Transitions addresses the fact that it is people who have to carry out the change. When the book was originally published a decade ago, Bridges was 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. With new information and commentary on layoffs, corporate suspicion, and the increasing tumult in the business world, Managing Transitions remains the definitive guide to dealing with change.

William Bridges offers counter-intuitive advice for those struggling with the confounding issue of managing people in transition.

He brings suprising clarity to the task of identifying those human behaviors that support the organization, and those that poison it's success.

Relying on his expansive experience, he offers clear examples and practical strategies to encourage healthy relationships between individuals and the organization as a whole.

He teaches the reader to appreciate the transition process as both predicatable and necessary for a maturing organization that seeks to respond to cultural and economic forces while retaining a sense of community.

No matter what endevor or organization you work with, Bridges has practical information that explains why we react to change, and how to know when to act, when to wait and when to leave a dysfunctional organization.
