Bridges, W. (1994).  Jobshift.
"The integrity I am talking about is psychological rather than ethical. It means 'wholeness', and its opposite is disintegration and not dishonesty. With so much change and fragmentation in the new career world, you need a solid core of self. You have to be true to who you are—to your identity." (p. 129)
Bridges, W. (1980).  Transitions: making sense of life's changes.
"The point is that disenchantment, whether it is a minor disappointment or a major shock, is the signal that things are moving into transition. At such times we need to consider whether the old view or belief may not have been an enchantment cast on us in the past to keep us from seeing deeper into ourselves and others than we were then ready to. For the whole idea of disenchantment is that reality has many layers, each appropriate to a phase of intellectual and spiritual development. The disenchantment experience is the signal that the time has come to look below the surface of what has been thought to be so.
Lacking this perspective on such experiences, however, we often miss the point and simply become 'disillusioned.'" (p. 101)
