Organized Transitions
Training and Mentoring Updates
While We're At It

Empowering Youth with AD/HD
by Jodi Sleeper-Triplett, MCC, SCAC, BCC


Whether you prefer the term "deep summer" or "dog days of summer", it is upon us!  Maybe you are still on vacation and enjoying your summer reading.  Or, you are looking at the calendar and wondering where summer has gone and how you will get yourself or your loved ones organized and ready to transition to whatever is next on life's agenda.

In this edition and in our weekly blog posts for August, we will share ideas on how to manage transitions and stay organized during the process.

Be well and enjoy the warmth and sunshine of summer. 


All the best,




Due to the overwhelming response to our 3-Day Intensive Training Program, we are planning another one in October!!  Details below.    

Organized Transitions

I was thinking about the millions of people who face life transitions every day. How do they do it? What makes some transitions easier than others? What are the keys to making an organized transition?


First, let's look at a few examples of transitions:

  • High school to college
  • Adult children returning home
  • Getting married
  • Moving to a new home/new city
  • New job/career change
  • New baby
  • Retirement
  • New pet
  • Getting divorced
  • Downsizing living space

What might you need to make an organized transition?

  • Skills
  • Strategies
  • Knowledge/information
  • Funding
  • Support
  • Low Stress
  • Health/Wellness
  • Family members/Co-workers/friends

When coaching clients through life transitions, I find that Sir Frances Bacon was right. "Knowledge IS Power!" The more my clients know about what is happening now and what might happen in the future, the easier it is to chunk down the tasks, reduce the stress, focus on the steps and make a smoother transition.


Let's take, for example, the transition from high school to college, a stressful time for both students and parents! What needs to be done to facilitate an organized transition? The questions range from the physical "stuff" to be purchased, packed and moved to the issues of health and wellness. How much "stuff" does a person really need at college? Didn't you wear your jeans at least 3 times before washing? What will that young person need to stay healthy and focused once classes begin? How will the student and the parents handle being apart (after the initial "yippee I am free")?


During the month, I will be sharing tips, strategies and resources to help with life transitions. I hope you will subscribe to our weekly blog and join the discussion!
