Changes occur all the time. They can be identifiable and dramatic, or they can emerge imperceptibly, creeping up on you until one day you realise your foundations are less solid than you imagined. At this point in your life you need to find a new path.' Changing Gear looks at why work is such an important part of a person's identity. The book is filled with case studies of people who have transitioned from one career to another, or stepped back from work to embrace retirement, and shines a light on the underlying, and sometimes unconscious, psychological and social dynamics involved. The book offers insight, advice and a practical 7-Step Transition Plan to help the reader make decisions and take account of their domestic and professional situations, looking at what's important and how to cope with change, and providing a road map for the future and all the different opportunities it may bring. Now, more than ever, our working lives have changed and we are all getting used to a new way of doing business. Coping with transition is hard and this book will help the reader to navigate new ways of working, by tapping into the current issues being faced by all workers.
