Tom Mallory, Club VP of Job Transition, hosts monthly small group meetings. All HBS alumni as well as other business leaders are invited who are in a job transition or planning for one.
OVERVIEW: The confidential monthly meetings are for those who are in a transition or contemplating a change, either in the same industry or a new one. These small, peer-to-peer group meetings are limited to only 10 people so everyone gets to know each other a little better and, in particular, gets feedback from the group. Every meeting has a new composition of people. Some have attended meetings in past while others are new. Also, the 2 hour meetings are a discussion, not a lecture. Attendees have found it to be a helpful resource to learn best practices, explore ideas, and get insightful feedback. Registration is only done online.
HISTORY: The Job Transition Group meetings started in 2008 and have scheduled meetings every month since then. Hundreds of executives have benefitted. Starting in 2009, the meetings were open to Atlanta Business School Alliance members as well. Today, like almost all HBS Club events, any executive level person can attend these job transition meetings. The meetings are run by Tom Mallory, Partner of Acadia Associates. He has been helping business people prepare for and go through job transitions, both as a transition coach and an executive search consultant, for over 15 years.
TOPICS: Discussion and feedback usually encompass the areas of optimizing your mind, clarifying your direction, and invigorating your presentation. Role playing about “What do you do?” and “How can I help you?” gets the discussion started
