TRANSITION PEER GROUP - NEW GROUP
- submitted by Barbara O'Sullivan
A new Transition Peer Group (TPG) for women who work focuses on the challenges and rewards of the current work place as well as preparing for what is next in work life or retirement. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 17, at 7:15 PM. The focus for the discussion is how to stay relevant as work life changes by choice or otherwise. We also will discuss our collective values for a beneficial group experience.
If you are interested, please mark your calendar to attend our May meeting. New members to the group are always welcome. Please contact Barbara at email@example.com with questions or to receive the zoom link.
TRANSITION PEER GROUP - Life Animated

After listening to the talk, we polled ourselves and most in the meeting were introverts, one was an ambivert (middle on the spectrum). Although this TED talk was from eight years ago, it seemed relevant to today, especially in the time of the pandemic when many are living quieter, more isolated lives by necessity. We talked about how some children thrive in remote learning because that’s how they learn best. We discussed coping mechanisms we've used for dealing with open/noisy offices and lack of privacy, and where you always had to be ready to socialize. We talked about our experiences growing up and how we felt as introverts or extroverts.
Topic for Thursday, May 13, at 10:00 AM is Post-pandemic life: Fears and anticipation. The pandemic has changed us, what do you look forward to, what do you want to avoid? Forward links of relevant articles to the group before the meeting.
All Minneapolis/St. Paul TTN members are welcome. We meet the second Thursday of the month from 10:00 AM-Noon. We are currently meeting via Zoom.
Please contact Eleni Skevas at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining this group.
TRANSITION PEER GROUP - Living with Purpose
- submitted by Barbara O'Sullivan
At our April 22 meeting, we experimented using a technique called WOOP (Wish/Outcome/Obstacles/Plan). Here is a link to learn more about the WOOP tool. The tool is included in the Yale course Science of Well-Being offered free of charge through Coursera. Members agreed that the tool can be useful for a variety purposes including improving our daily habits and relationships with others.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 27, at 6:30 PM. We will use the meeting as a follow up to the TTN MSP Workshop Unmasking our Truth: Pondering the Pandemic and Forecasting our Future which is scheduled for Saturday, May 15. Attendance at the workshop is not necessary for our TPG discussion but is strongly encouraged.
All Minneapolis/St. Paul TTN members are welcome. We meet the fourth Thursday of the month from 6:30-8:00 PM. We are currently meeting via Zoom.

TRANSITION PEER GROUP - West Metro
- submitted by Jean Forrey
In April, we met and had another opportunity to get to know each other better. Those who wanted to participate took a “quiz” from the VIA Institute on Character. This “quiz” profiled our character strengths based on 24 characteristics such as humor, zest, self-regulation, love of learning and leadership etc. It was really fun looking at ourselves and each other through this lens.
We also discussed the podcast from The Island of Discarded Women and are all looking forward to the summer garden party and Sue Scott as one of the headliners!
Please feel free to join us on the first Monday of every month from 1:00- 2:30 or 3:00 PM. Contact Jean Forrey at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to be added to the e-mail list.
