As the psychological contract between workers and workplaces undergoes profound change, it is apparent that current models and practices of career development are rapidly becoming obsolete. This article describes a new model/process, Career Growth, which integrates planning, development, and change into a comprehensive model that offers clients effective ways of managing the confusion, anxiety, and relentless change which are so much a part of their lives. After briefly describing the model′s competences and attributes, three specific methods grown from the model are presented, along with several examples of their application. The article concludes with some observations about how clients make change, and why these new ways of thinking about and doing career development work are so vital.
