Abstract:

"How does a person change diapers in the morning and run a division in the afternoon? How does a newly retired surgeon cope with the loss of ideality and status? Role Transitions in Organizational Life: An Identity-Based Perspective charts the processes through which individuals move between roles during the workday and over the worklife. The book focuses on transitioning - the social psychological dynamics of role entry and role exit. Role Transitions explores not only the intersection of roles and identity, but many relatively undeveloped concepts such as normalization, turning points, disidentification, temporary identities, liminality, identity narratives, selective forgetting, transition bridges, role reversals, and time compression. Research from a diverse array of organizational settings and occupations is included, from the education of medical students to the promotion of salespeople and from the adjustment of camp counselors to the retirement of CEOs. Role Transitions will appeal to scholars and students in the fields of orgainizational behavior, human resource management, and social, developmental, and industrial psychology"--Back cover.
