- Many more of us, and potentially a majority of our children, will live to be 100 or more
- Organizations (and society) still tend to frame our lives in three stages: education, work, retirement
- Transitions now happen more often for us and are less likely to be in lock-step with our peers
- The problem with transition: the people who know you best don’t want you to change

- Truth is essential in leadership
