Did you know that globally, the population aged 65 and over is growing faster than all other age groups? Due to the ageing baby boomer generation (those born between 1946 – 1964), the UN has declared that population ageing is poised to become one of the most significant social transformations of the twenty-first century … by 2050, one in four persons living in Europe and Northern America could be aged 65 or over!
Yet how many boomers are actually prepared to embrace RETIREMENT, this next exciting and complex transitional stage of life (which could last at least 30 years)? How will they prepare for the changing relationship with their identity, their environment, their biology, their productivity, their leisure and social lives as well as their money?
At the Coach Approach, we have developed a comprehensive retirement support program, providing a reliable compass to re-create balance and enhance well-being. By incorporating empirically researched tools and strategies, we offer a framework which supports each boomer in developing a renewed sense of meaning, community and engagement in their next chapter.
Are you nearing retirement, or know a boomer who is in need of retirement coaching? Contact us for more information on how to move from Booming to Blooming!
A recent post in the Executive’s magazine Business Leadership Management (BLM) states: “Brains? It doesn’t necessarily mean a high IQ. It means curiosity, common sense, wisdom, imagination, and literacy.”
Sounds like a perfect description of coaching, as practiced by our team at The Coach Approach! Bolstered by our innate curiosity, we support our clients in exploring their best outcomes and ways to realize them. The results? A process which fosters deepening awareness of where they are now (common sense); where they want to get to (imagination); and a variety of possible ways to get there (wisdom).
Awareness – acceptance – actions … brain power incorporating emotional intelligence = the best support for your professional development!
At the Coach Approach, we like to speak of both the Art and the Science of coaching. So what is the science? In a nutshell, it is what is known today as Positive Psychology – the scientific study of what works well. Different from mere positive thinking, it is based upon proven research into how we increase our well being. And this is the point from which engagement and accomplishments flow … another benefit from a Coach Approach training workshop!

Professional workshops and conferences offer the stimulation of new learning and exciting connections, and this year’s “Sprachen und Beruf” in Berlin is no exception. Its goal is to encourage the training of effective business communication and intercultural skills within the current global economy. Anna is pleased to collaborate by presenting “The Coaching Element” with the able assistance of Sonia Ceresoni.
To further encourage and support the addition of the Coach Approach in training environments, we are adding a special bonus following this year’s Sprachen und Beruf conference. For all our workshops offeredin-house, we will give each participant a FREE copy of our specialized e-book: “Coaching Toolkit for Business English Trainers”.
Here’s to working together to expand our collective toolkits!
