Description

This introduction to career and life transformation concepts is led by Robin Trimingham of The Olderhood Group. The course overview asks the question: "regardless of your current age or stage of life, why is it important to think about the future now?" The course includes a description of the six areas of life that need to be considered in co-ordination as you progress from one stage of life to the next.

Every generation of employees tends to be over-focused on meeting the demands of their daily lives and not really thinking or planning for the next step. We all know that we "should" save for the future, but what about all the other areas of life? Key topics include: impact of advances in longevity, adopting a holistic view of aging, why financial planning alone is not enough, career development and the value of a focused life plan.

Every generation of employees tends to be heavily-focused on meeting the demands of their job and not paying proper attention to their personal plans for the next stages of their life. They are and not really thinking or planning for the next step. We all understand the value of money in our life and all know that we "should" save for the future – yet many of us believe we are not in a position to make those savings at the moment so we put them off - in some cases we ignore them completely. But what about all the other areas of our life? This course details the importance of Holistic Life Transition Planning.

Whether your retirement date is just around the corner or years, or even decades away - do you know how much money you will actually need to meet your daily expenses when you do retire? More to the point - do you know if you are saving enough money now to provide for yourself in the future? The problem is that if we are merely “making ends meet” - at the moment - then our outlook on savings is bleak. This section of the Course discussion will help you think differently about your spending patterns and savings profile and provide a realistic way to arrange your finances to be able to save.

In the age of internet there is a huge temptation to spend all of your time reacting to incoming data and stimuli instead of working on your personal development. What would happen if you intentionally decided to view your whole life experience differently? And instead of worrying about whether your own needs and desires were being met, you focused your energy and attention on serving those around you as a means to achieving the highest level of self-actualization. This course will challenge you to change your attitude toward personal growth and life planning.

Did you know that boredom and loneliness are the two biggest problems in retirement? Surprisingly, the average person spends more time planning for a 2-week vacation than they do for their entire retirement. In today's fast-paced world, making the transition from full-time employment to a completely new life in retirement can be quite a shock – especially if you haven't figured out what you are going to do with your time. This Course will challenge you to think differently about your future.

This Course details the many ways in which a woman's life journey is unique. Key topics include: thinking about the future now, the problem with multi-tasking, the illusion of finding balance and value of employing a holistic self-management system to carry you forward. While the Course is for both men and women, we believe that there are some particular aspects of life that apply to women in particular. In fact, we believe that men, particularly in the workforce, will benefit from understanding and appreciating these issues.
