BABY BOOMER RETIREMENT LIFESTYLE PLANNING
This program has been developed for baby boomers who are either recently retired or facing retirement. It addresses the individual's concerns around loss of work identity and how to successfully achieve the transition of the four phases of retirement.
In the workshop the individual learns how to replace the intrinsic benefits of paid work (such as purpose, social connection, mental stimulation and structure) with a serious leisure pursuit that can deliver purpose, pleasure and meaning.
This leads to uncertainty in the years prior to retiring and consequences include loss of morale, lower productivity and leaking accrued leave.
