9781585420766: Changing Directions Without Losing Your Way: Managing the Six Stages of Change at Work and in Life

The complete guide for anyone who faces sudden change at work, in technology, and in the world around them.

In Changing Directions Without Losing Your Way, the authors who helped pioneer the "working from home" revolution identify the six stages of change in business and in life. In each of these six stages, Paul and Sarah demonstrate how to understand and assess change for what it is, and then recast your career or other vital aspects of life to adapt to new realities.

Their new book is filled with concrete suggestions, allowing every reader to feel that he or she can gain control of whatever situation life presents.

From facing a new reality, releasing the past, finding an inner compass, embracing the future, developing a strategy, to putting the show on the road, the six stages of change are clearly explained. The book even shows how to develop better nutrition and health habits that energize the body during periods of stress. The authors supply useful and simple exercises to help readers understand their options. They also supply vivid examples of others who have successfully wrestled with the disruptions of job changes, downsizing, or changes.

About the Author:

Paul and Sarah Edwards are the bestselling authors of numerous books, including Best Home Businesses for the 21st Century and Getting Business to Come to You. They provide informative and inspirational advice on self-employment to millions of people through their radio and television shows, their on-line venues, and their popular newspaper magazine columns.

From AudioFile:

In a narrative that relies heavily on case histories, the authors describe all the constructive and not so constructive ways that people react to big changes at home or work. You can manage the unexpected if you know the six stages of change and handle each one with a firm grip on reality. You also need courage to understand yourself fully. The two authors alternate the reading and are pleasantly hopeful as they spell out their strategies for charting a new personal course. They're especially good at describing emotional blocks and how to get past them when starting a new direction. T.W. AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
