Retirement & Lifestyle Solutions

Exploring your Transition

As retirement approaches, it is a chance to rediscover yourself, prioritize relationships, explore passions, and engage with your community. Unfortunately, retirement is often associated with ensuring that you have enough money and not much thought has been given to what you want to get out of your retirement.

Being intentional in exploring and understanding what a happy, satisfying, and productive retirement looks like can help provide a successful and well-lived post-working life. What will allow you to be your best self in retirement and create the best life possible? Working with a certified retirement coach can help you find the answers.

Navigating the Sands of Change

Whether you find yourself in the sandwich generation or navigating other distinct circumstances, our retirement solutions are crafted to meet your specific needs. Your retirement plan, actually a ‘life plan”, should be every bit as unique as you are.

Most people assume they want to retire, as soon as they feasibly can, but have not looked very deep into what it means in their day-to-day life. Retirees can go through many different phases of emotions after they stop working. You might initially start with a sense of freedom, but you can also experience periods of regret, boredom, anxiety, and depression. These unexpected and unknown emotions might creep in slowly and it is important to recognize these emotions.

  • Successful Planning  Attaining clear insights and boosting confidence in your retirement strategy, while crafting a well-defined roadmap for the next chapter of your life.
  • Emotional Preparedness  Addressing the ‘What Do I Do Now?’ Our approach focuses on helping you cultivate awareness to effectively manage the emotional aspects of retirement with greater confidence and readiness.
  • Purpose & Vision – Tackling the question of “Who am I beyond my career? Encouraging an exploration and expansion of self-identity, discovering what brings fulfillment, and elevating one’s self concept, fostering an enriched approach to retirement.
  • Navigating Lifestyle Shifts  Addressing the question of how to fill newfound free time by exploring recreation, reinvention, and adjustment to a new, flexible schedule. Adapting to a new, different, or even schedule-free lifestyle through thoughtful planning.
  • Evolving Relationships  Examining and proactively managing potential shifts in relationships, including those with spouses, friends, and former colleagues, and understanding their impact.
  • Awareness of Triggers  Fostering understanding of potential triggers and proactively mitigating surprises in the post-retirement phase.

Retirement coaching provides an opportunity to explore, learn, and prepare for your retirement through participation in assessments, workbooks, reflection, and 1:1 coaching. Working with your certified retirement coach, you take stock in the 6 arenas of retirement (Career & Work, Health & Wellness, Finance & Insurance, Family & Relationships, Leisure & Social, and Personal Development) and understand what each one means to you. Through individual coaching sessions, participants can understand their unique assessment results and identify areas driving any shortfalls. 

Certified Coaches are equipped with the tools, training, and support to effectively coach the largest demographic in the world. These assessments deliver the accurate, personalized, and comprehensive information you need to provide high-impact retirement coaching. In addition, leading organizations realize that retirement planning begins 30 years before retirement and have started providing support to emerging employees early in their careers.

World-class coaches analyze these results to help guide participants through a planning process to design and prepare for their desired retirement.
