Building Your Career Transition Strategy:
A Framework for Managing the Reintegration Process

We are delighted to announce that this guide, as well as individual reports for all of the sixteen types, are now available at and we have also been blogging about it on the Self-Discovery Digest

Reintegration is a process that people undertake at various points in their life—and to varying degrees—when they are faced with the need to readjust after extended periods of unfamiliar or highly stressful experiences. Whether you are working with service members returning home from combat deployment or volunteers acclimating to life after a relief mission, this guide can help you provide your clients—as well as their supporters—with insights into the reintegration process and help them to understand how to deal most effectively with the challenges involved. Offering an in-depth look at using personality type to support successful reintegration, it presents guidance for each type on how to improve the reintegration experience across a wide variety of contexts, from career exploration and development to interpersonal relationships, and provides practical tips for facilitating success, techniques for avoiding actions that may derail progress, and important information to inspire action plans that promote success.
