Day 3: The “Anatomy of a Transition” with Jeff Hamaoui

MEA co-founder and Chief Education Officer Jeff Hamaoui explains the “Anatomy of a Transition” as three living and interconnected categories that define our journey. Transitions begin with an end, followed by a “messy middle” phase. The final stage is a new beginning where we normalize and integrate who we have become.

The ending means the beginning of a journey of who we can become.

In the middle stage we are rebuilding ourselves.

The final stage of new beginnings is filled with renewed purpose.

Key Question / Takeaway

Transitions don’t happen in isolation, they happen in community. Do you have support?
