Change vs Transition

This extract explains the difference between Change - what happens in the outside world, and Transition - the processes we go through in adapting to change.

Change happens quickly. I'm doing this job today, I move to the new job on Monday. Transition takes much longer. Having ways of understanding our responses to change, and anticipating the various transitions involved means we can develop strategies to accelerate adaptation, and get back to working competently more quickly.

For more ways to better understand our responses to change, anticipate and plan for transitions, and maintain a great learning state and positive attitude to change, visit the Working through Change course information page.
