Ferocious ReCareering Coaches
There’s a simple reason for the rise of the recareering coach: 90% of people who retire for the first time are back in the work force within one year. This not because they don’t have the money to retire, but because:
- they’re bored and unfocused
- they don’t know how to structure their time
- they miss the social collegiality of the work environment
- they feel their lives lack some degree of meaning or purpose
For these reasons, more and more new retirees are becoming depressed.
(Are you looking for a standard career coach?)
When we help you to create a fulfilling life, we’re life coaching. But given the current economic environment and the emphasis on “giving back,” on “making a contribution to the whole,” more and more retirees are interested in enhancing the role of productive work in their lives. Life coaching and career coaching with a different kind of mission? Some call it recareer coaching.
Did you know that most people spend more time planning a two-week vacation than they do planning their retirement? Many plan for the financial side of retirement, but very few consider the non-financial aspects of their retirement lifestyle.
Have you asked yourself, what you really want in your retirement? Do you want to work, part-time, full-time, not at all; or do you want to volunteer? Do you want to renew old passions or explore new beginnings? How will you develop a new sense of identity and feeling of purpose in your community without your job? How will you replace the sense of connectedness and develop new relationships that former work colleagues provided?
Demographics tell us that that 76 million baby boomers will retire in the near future. If you’re one of them this could mean that you have 30 years in your retirement life to life and savor. Working with our retirement coaches you will explore and envision the various aspects of the retirement lifestyle you would like to create. These areas might include: leisure, learning, growth and creativity, emotional and spiritual well-being, physical health, fitness and nutrition, work and career, community service, friendships, and family. Once you developed clarity around the retirement lifestyle you want to create, create and you’ll develop a plan to turn you vision into reality.
According to federal labor statistics more than a quarter of Americans in the workforce is age 50 and over. And for some, the dramatic change in our economy, changing attitudes towards retirement and a desire to create more meaningful work is leaving millions of adults in the second half of life, “What’s next?”
In many cases continuing in a current career does not fulfill financial, personal, or spiritual needs as it once did. For others re-entering the work-force has become a necessity due to the new economic conditions. A ReCareer can be the answer for those searching for a new career direction and purpose in the second half of life.
ReCareer is a term coined by Richard Johnson, Ph.D. a nationally recognized pioneer and author in the area of maturing adult development. In his book, ReCareer, Find Your Authentic Work, Dr Johnson states, “A ReCareer is not just about finding a new career, but rather it’s a process that brings the who and the what of a person into closer alignment. A ReCareer establishes a new design for one’s life, a design that is a clearer and closer blueprint of who a person is now…and who they will be come. Your ReCareer is a time for developing a second wind, a time for reinvigorating you spirit by finding work that is truly satisfying.”
