Sample Workshops

I greatly appreciate the dialogue and give-and-take in the coaching – and the fact that Amy is extremely flexible and intuitive in her interactions with me---willing to zag if that’s what the discussion calls for, even if we’ve been merrily zigging along, rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach to coaching. I feel that she is truly my partner in exploring the many ways I can shape my future -- uncovering the fields that are of the greatest interest to me, the type of environments that will most inspire me to be at my best, and the roles that will leverage my strengths and bring me the greatest satisfaction.

She is incredibly approachable and non-judgmental. Honest and trustworthy. I feel safe with her. She is enthusiastic – about her work and about my possibilities. Her optimism is infectious and inspires me to be more optimistic, too.

Post-Retirement Game Plan

Retirement is not the end of the productive phase of your life -- it can in fact be the most rewarding and intentional time of your life. You set the game plan, and you determine how you want the game to play out in this phase.

Many leaders are proud of what they have accomplished but feel lost when they think of life without the structured work they have been doing. Hiring a coach can help you move from confusion to clarity with confidence into your next phase of life. Why a coach? Because you deserve to be clear about your direction in what can be the most important phase of your life -- a time that is not only exciting to embark on, but one of continual enjoyment and fulfillment.

General Post-Retirement Game Plan Approach

  • Help the client say “goodbye” to their career “up until now” and help them say “hello” to the next phase
  • Partner with the client to develop a retirement transition plan
  • Develop coaching goals, both in the short-term and long-term
  • Help the client gain greater awareness of their desires and contributions.
  • Use tools to help build awareness
  • Encourage the development of a post-retirement game plan.

The Equipment/Tools

Coaching tools/frameworks help you see yourself differently. The main tool is the art and science of asking great questions—questions that stimulate a client’s thinking and feelings so that they learn something new. The other tools we use are assessments and frameworks to help clients deepen self-awareness to help get clarity about what might bring the most fulfillment.

  • Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Assess how your personality helps define how you like to work.
  • Strong Interest Inventory. What are you most interested in now?
  • Values Clarification. Understand what’s important to you about work and life, and how they are satisfied in the workplace.
  • Visioning
  • Strengths Analysis. Strengthen a strength or explore an underdeveloped strength
  • Life Balance Analysis
  • Motivated Skills Inventory
  • Passionate Purpose Exercise
  • Coaching through Roadblocks
  • Post-Retirement Transition Plan

The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them. — George Bernard Shaw
