PRESS RELEASE - July 13, 2006
(For immediate release or later use)
How should you handle transitions? How should you handle transitions? With the recent release of Character in Transition - A Guide to Not Burning the Bridge, author Nicholas Andrew Depew tackles that question by challenging people to approach the subject of change and the idea of transition from an uncommon point of view. Character in Transition - A Guide to Not Burning the Bridge walks the reader through an easy to follow, step by step process for how a person can make changes in their life successfully. Whether that means changing jobs/careers, receiving a promotion, moving to another community, or changing one's standing in membership situations, Character in Transition offers practical advice for handling transitions correctly. Character in Transition - A Guide to Not Burning the Bridge encourages readers to question the norm and expected everyday standards typically associated with transitions while inviting them to strive for more out of life. This is accomplished by examining subjects such as: 

  • Knowing when to say when to change
  • Formulating an exit/transition strategy for pursuing personal and professional goals
  • Overcoming resistance when going through transitions
  • Seeing through uncertainty associated with transitions
  • Avoiding pitfalls while making transitions
  • Leaving a positive legacy
  • Taking your experiences with you into future settings
