From Who’s Who to Who’s That – Handling the Emotional Ups and Downs of Retirement


Are you wondering about what you will lose when you retire?   Does retirement mean you’ll be leaving a job that provides status, visibility, and multiple perks?  Will others continue to reach out to you regularly for your leadership, expertise, and wisdom?

In this inspiring presentation, you will learn how to:

  • Reflect on the expectations that others hold about what you should and shouldn’t do in retirement.
  • Examine the internal stories that may help or hinder you as you embark on your Next Chapter.
  • Rewrite these stories, navigate the emotional components of your journey, and prepare for your Next Chapter

Moving into your Next Chapter is an emotional experience.  Although each person reacts differently, it is wise to expect some ups and downs.  You can make the journey easier by preparing ahead for how you might react and how you could shift your perceptions.

As Wayne Dyer said, “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”  You’ll leave this event ready to face the changes ahead and create a joyful Next Chapter.
