A change occurs at one point of time, a transition describes the process of changing. We can say that it is a state, for example a childbirth would be classified as a change while becoming a mother will be more of a transition.
When you are at the origin of the change, if it is wanted, wished for, welcome, the transition will be easier to live.
Say you have decided to go to work for another company. Of course you may still find the transition challenging – you will have to get used to working with new colleagues, understand your new boss’s expectations, learn the office rules, etc. but as this it what you wanted, chances are you will enjoy it.
However, if you were made redundant and had to find a new job – you may experience serious difficulties getting used to your new workplace, however great the professional opportunity.
This is because of what is called: resistance to change.
