Induction phase is a term in Tiedeman's career decision model that refers to the phase when a person encounters the new work environment for the first time. He or she wants to be accepted and looks to others for cues about how to behave. The person identifies with the new group and seeks recognition for his or her unique characteristics. Gradually, the self -image is modified as the person begins to believe in the values and goals of the work group.
