In the New Retirement, more and more people are seeking to retire to something instead of the old approach of retiring from something. Finding meaning and purpose in retirement has become much more important now as many of us find that this part of our life could be as long as our previous careers! Many people only plan for the financial aspects of life after work, which can leave them feeling lost, unhappy or feeling like their life lacks the same meaning and purpose they felt when work consumed so much of their time. Retirement coaching helps you look at, and plan for, all the other equally important aspects of your new life.
Your retirement could last for the next 10, 20 even 40 years! Some of the things we will encourage you to consider include:
The Life Options Assessment tool and the Retirement Success Profile questionnaire are professionally developed tools we use to help you self-assess your preparedness for retirement. We help you identify your expectations of retirement and compare those expectations with where you're at in your preparation for the non-financial aspects of retirement. Through our training and guidance, we will help you to find your areas of strength in retirement planning and identify the areas and goals that need more focus to ensure you achieve success in retirement.
Studies have shown that people who are planning for retirement and are well prepared for the new life they are moving to, are more satisfied and productive in their last years at work. The transition period can be a happy and exciting time, instead of worrisome and distracting. We encourage you to consider getting a group together at your work for an enjoyable and educational workshop, complete with individual assessments and ongoing guidance and support. Whether you're close to retirement or not, we're sure that you'll all get something positive out of the experience.
