9781137476548: Women and Transition: Reinventing Work and Life

Women & Transition introduces women to a new way of thinking about the events that shape their adult lives - like marriage or job loss or empty nests - and offers a step-by-step toolkit specifically designed to help women navigate transition successfully.  In a recent study, ninety percent of women stated that they 'expect to transition' within the next five years. The book helps women increase their awareness of transition and understand it as positive and optimistic, a substantive departure from the negative characteristics typically ascribed to it.

From the Back Cover:

Have you ever experienced a job loss, an empty nest, menopause, childbirth, marriage, divorce, infertility, retirement, a career change, a geographic move, a change in health status or other similarly weighty life event? Each one can begin a transition, a unique opportunity to realign your life, nourish the person you are, and live the life you imagine. This book helps readers understand transition and presents a unique step-by-step roadmap every woman can use to make transition positive, optimistic and approachable throughout her life. Even with a Harvard MBA and a track record of great success behind her, author Linda Rossetti faced a wrenching transition after realizing the career path she had spent years building was no longer suitable or sustainable. She was in her mid-forties, a senior executive at a Fortune 500 Company with countless hours logged in conference rooms, hotel rooms and on airplanes, when both her family and professional life began to unravel. She sought out change - like many women - a new job, less travel, more time at home, but quickly realized this was not the answer. Rossetti's transition story coupled with the frustration felt by millions of women with similar experiences set Rossetti on a course to search for answers. Rossetti found the answers in the transition experiences of hundreds of women whom she interviewed over three years. WOMEN & TRANSITION was born out of those conversations. The story is told in the author's own voice and the voices of many of these women who shared their heartfelt transition stories with her. WOMEN & TRANSITION defines transition, introduces a toolkit for transitioning, and delivers a roadmap for women from all walks of life to take the next steps on their own journey. Woven throughout this valuable transition blueprint are real - human - stories that constantly inspire and remind us that we are not alone in this journey. WOMEN & TRANSITION is a chronicle of modern day women's experience and an irreplaceable guide that will help women of all ages. This book was created for women to take on transition and to find a path that opens opportunity.
