For something that we have been experiencing all our lives, most of us handle change very badly. We switch careers and marriages more often than ever before, we move from one city to another, meet different people every day; yet each change brings with it new fears and further confusion. How can we better handle these difficult, painful experiences? And what new insights can we learn about ourselves from these transitions? This book helps both in identifying and in coping with such critical changes in our lives. It takes us step by step through the transition process, offering skills, suggestions and advice for negotiating each of these three perilous passages: endings, the neutral zone, the new beginning
JobShift : how to prosper in a workplace without jobs by William Bridges( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 1,369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The bad news, according to this ground-breaking book by top consultant William Bridges, is that jobs are disappearing. The good news is that a job isn't the only way that people work to earn a good living. In fact, it's no longer the best way. Our idea of a "job" was invented during the Industrial Revolution, and is out of synch with today's technological and economic forces. JobShift shows how we can thrive in our de-jobbed future. Its "Career Guide for the 21st-Century Worker" will help you to rethink your work so you can create your own 'job security'."--Jacket

"No one is better at explaining the new world of work than William Bridges, inventor of the term "You & Co." In Creating You & Co., he provides workers with a practical guide to overcoming the employment trends illuminated in his bestsellers Managing Transitions and JobShift. By seeing beyond outdated notions of the job and learning to think as a business leader, you can find work that over the years will be both more fulfilling and more secure." "Creating You & Co. provides self-assessment tests that help you to identify your Desires, Abilities, Temperament, and Assets. This "D.A.T.A." is more than a window to what you like doing; it reveals your unique advantages in the work market. Other exercises lead you through the process of defining your "product" and spotting your "market." By the end of this book you'll think about your work in a new way - you'll think like the CEO of You & Co." "As Bridges shows, true security comes not from clinging to a job, but from doing the work you're best at for the employers who need it. By learning that approach you can cement your value to your current employer, shape a new job for yourself, actually start a small company, or blaze your own path. No matter what shape your You & Co. takes, we will all need to learn the Creating You & Co. approach to prosper in the years ahead."--Jacket
