Harnessing the Power of Career Transition Groups.
Adoradio, Marianne; Oja, Anne
This paper discusses the authors' experiences with organizing and running groups for clients in career transition, whether that be a completely new career or a job search. One key to successful groups is organization, especially finding the right mix of members. They can have similar or different goals, but must be well matched for ego-strength. The group leader's style must also be considered in setting up a group. Some leaders do better with unstructured groups, others with more fixed agendas. Finally the issue of group termination is discussed. Especially for open-ended groups, this must be carefully orchestrated to allow the group members to disengage and carry on with the skills they have learned. (Author)
