Ellevate members weigh in on the most important things for career transitions

Ellevate members are experts on career transitions and reinventions - whether we're moving into senior leadership, moving to a new company, starting our own businesses, or taking time off from our career, it's clear that our modern careers won't be linear

So what does it take to navigate a successful transition? Members agree that it's not testing the waters so you're sure of what's to come - in fact, career transitions are so full of unknown unknowns that 34% of members agree resilience is the most important thing in a successful transition. A large network (22%), financial security (20%), and being okay with ambiguity (11%) are all important for navigating the uncertainty of transition. 

If you're preparing for a transition, read up on our tips for a career "pivot" practical thoughts on starting your own business, and the things most of us forget.


We regularly ask the Ellevate community how they feel about topics that are important to professional women around the world. See More Ellevate Insights.
