Even if retirement is something you’re looking forward to, actually leaving the world of work can be daunting. It is a time filled with changes, and like any other life transition, your retirement will be more successful if you have a plan. But the fact is, most people spend more time planning for a two-week vacation than they do for what could amount to more than 30 years of their life!
Work meets many of our basic needs besides providing a pay cheque: a sense of purpose and meaning, structure to our day, opportunities to form relationships and connect with others, to name a few. How will those needs be met once you retire? Those who take a proactive approach and plan for these aspects of retirement and have a positive sense of themselves outside of work will have a smoother transition.
Your Ideal Retirement Coaching offers a variety of resources and programs that will help you to figure out how you can achieve just that – a smooth transition to your ideal retirement – whatever that may look like!
Retirement is a time of our lives that is filled with possibility. It’s like a do-over of the question: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Only this time you've got the time, freedom and a lifetime of experience to help you figure it out! What do you want this next phase of your life to look like? Who do you want to become? What would you like to retire to instead of from?
I believe coaching is about empowering you to live your very own version of the "good life" – whatever that might look like. The retirement coaching process helps you determine your readiness for retirement, reflect on what could be, set goals and take action towards them. Working with a coach makes the whole process easier and helps you build a plan to achieve your dreams faster.
