Creating the Career & Life You Want After 50



Is it time to explore the career you’ve been dreaming about?


Are you at a work-life crossroad and longing for work that is meaningful, where your job is more than just a paycheck?


Do you want to pursue a fulfilling and rewarding livelihood?


Whether you are transitioning to a new career, re-envisioning the one you have, re-entering the workforce or wanting to discover something totally new, this 3-part workshop will help you map your journey and mobilize your inner wisdom, leverage decades of life and work experience to launch a new beginning after 50!

In a small, safe and supportive group we will engage in a variety of assessment and reflection activities that will guide you to:

  • Create a vision of what is possible for you in for this next chapter of your life and develop a roadmap to get you there.
  • Identify your transferable and preferred skills, information to help you create a Unique Value Proposition to focus your career exploration and planning.
  • Understand how your life-work values can direct you towards work and life options where you can make meaning and experience greater purpose.
