"The minute you do what you really want to do, it's really a very different kind of life."
-Buckminster Fuller


Coaching for Career and Life Transitions

Members of one of the most rapidly growing populations, the demographic group known as “baby boomers,” are now beginning to redefine the retirement years. While many choose to move into traditional retirement or even early retirement, others in the group are looking at the development of new careers and pursuits. This population is the healthiest, most affluent and well educated of any aging group in our history. We will see some very innovative ways in which people will remain viable contributors to the work force as they pursue their passions for the duration of a lifetime!

Perhaps the only thing we can count on in today’s world is change...

Like it or not, change is all around us. Even when we stay in one place, we still have to deal with transitions in our environment. People are being asked to live in a world in which there is less and less security and stability. Men and women find themselves changing not only their jobs, but also their careers throughout the course of their lifetimes.

The result has been greater self-reliance and less ability to assume that systems, employers or corporations will take care of us. What does this mean for the average person? More than ever, we need to know ourselves—who we are and what we bring to the table. We also need to clearly define and articulate our abilities, talents and skills. When we know who we are, what our strengths are, and how we best fit in an organization, we are in a position of self advocacy and thus more resilient in a sea of change.
