Event Description/Presentation Abstract: Transition – an End Game


Describing yourself to others as ‘In Transition’ can evoke reactions of horror at varying levels. From “What terrible thing did you do to deserve this?” to “I’m SO SO SO sorry for your loss” to “Are you going to want something from me?”. But there is no need to fear. ‘In Transition’ can be a time of gearing up for the next adventure, a sabbatical of self-discovery or a launch pad to more satisfying and fulfilling endeavors. It can even be an end game. In this talk, Libby will share her stories of being ‘In Transition’ along with strategies, tricks and tools to help you manage through this rich and rewarding career phase.
