"In the 1970s, Betty Friedan touched a deep chord in American women when she addressed 'the problem that has no name' in The Feminine Mystique. Linda Rossetti taps this generation's 'problem that has no name': Transitions. Original, insightful, personal and yet universal, and keenly realistic, this book is a must-read for every woman seeking to pursue her unique life." Evelyn Murphy, MA Lt Governor and President of The Wage Project
"Linda Rossetti's book opened my eyes to new and refreshing views of the challenges they face in transitions. As the CEO of an organization with a large percentage of women leaders, Linda's insights provide me with a whole new way of understanding what transitions mean.' David Segal, President and CEO, Neighborhood Health Plan
'This is a wakeup call for women on the fast track of their career. Women & Transition brilliantly establishes that career transitions are more than the literal move from one position to another it's equally about the psychological transition that occurs during this time. Rossetti establishes that transitions are especially important for career women to know about because there are factors - such as their view of themselves as caregivers, how society sees their capability versus men, and women's views of their own capabilities that greatly influence HOW career women manage their transitions. ' Beverly Edgehill, VP The TJX Companies, Inc., and former CEO and President of The Partnership, Inc.
'Chances are highly likely that we will all go through a transition sometime in our lives, either planned or unplanned. Linda Rossetti's book helps us navigate those transitions by giving us a better understanding of the process, our emotions, and how to redefine our new selves.' Stephanie Sonnabend, former CEO and President, Sonesta International Hotels Corporation, Co-founder and Chair 2020 Women on Boards
'As a recent 'retiree' following 30 years of military service, I faced an unfamiliar transition into the civilian world work, academia and lifestyle. Transitions are a natural part of all our lives, and these passages are oftentimes difficult enough to 'survive' - let alone 'thrive.' Linda Rossetti's Women & Transition is a refreshing approach illustrating how to choose and reframe transitions in both our personal and professional lives. ' Dana H. Born, PhD, Brigadier General, USAF Retired, Lecturer, Harvard Kennedy School of Government
'Being in transition: That uncomfortable place, between here and there, where you're not sure where you fit in and where you're going. In Women & Transition Linda Rossetti gives us a new paradigm to define these life gaps and provides important insight on how to use them in meaningful and productive ways. Being in transition is not an embarrassment; it's a gift. A time to re-invent, re-define, and explore our life's passions. This is a must-read for anyone who finds themselves at a crossroads.' Malli Gero, Co-founder and President, 2020 Women on Boards
