Preparing for Moves to Other Businesses or Professional Settings

As you get ready to make a career movement (for example, to become an executive or move to a different training, HRD, or workplace learning and performance role) or a professional shift (for example, to become an entrepreneur or join a consulting firm), it’s important to face the actuality of the change event.
