    Key Points

    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
    Navigating more transitions in life means that we need to have networks with people who are not like us
    Truth is essential in leadership
