Retirement Transition Coaching

What would you want to be different? Get a head start or a fresh start in your life’s finest chapter.

Stepping on your post-career stage is something you’ll most likely be doing for the very first time ever.  How you approach this major life transition makes all the difference. 

Why Retirement Coaching?

Your transition to post-career life is unlike anything you’ve done before in your life. Yet nothing and no one – not even your well-practiced skills in changing jobs or careers – has prepared you for this new reality.

Are you 55+?

You may be considering financial security as your main focus in retirement.

Not so.

It is the non-financial aspect that will determine if this important period of your life is meaningful or regretful.

And what all that means to you is different than what it means to someone else.

For example, how did you respond to that sudden lonely feeling on the morning after you’ve walked out of the office for the last time?

Take Paul, who in a single week had gone through both a retirement farewell party and a divorce. Then, instead of feeling defeated, went on to create for himself a new social network strategy so he can feel connected and supported.

Get a head start with The Beyond Midlife perspective, so you can confidently design this new stage of your life.

Any point is a starting point.

How you'll learn

Picture this.

You and I are having a no-obligation discovery call, exploring what’s changing in your life, how it’s challenging you, and what you’d like to have happened instead.  I listen and ask questions. I also share my approach and elaborate on the coaching process and logistics.

And then it’s your turn to ask questions.

Working together is a personal choice. It’s important that we both feel good about that before creating a mutual coaching agreement.

Your unique needs will define our work together. I customize each coaching session to help you move from inquiry, to awareness and insight, and then to action. 

You can expect to deepen the learning from each session by engaging in some deliberate practice between one session and the next.

You may be looking for a head-start or needing a fresh-start. Either way, your priorities, your focus, your goals, and your action steps will be different.

By the end of our engagement you’ll have created a uniquely-yours Non-Financial Retirement Focus path for your beyond-midlife years so you can feel more optimistic and prepared for what’s next.

Once you retire, you'll see changes in these 7 areas:

1. SOCIAL - your relationships

3. PHYSICAL – health and well-being
4. EMOTIONAL – coping and resilience
5. OCCUPATIONAL – contributing your experience
6. SPIRITUAL – anything that lifts you up

You'll get to go deeper into how these changes are likely to impact on you and others in your retirement life. You’ll set goals and create action steps that align with everything that's most important to you.
