Planning for Life after Retirement
Many organizations offer pre-retirement seminars for seasoned employees – usually when it’s too late for effective planning and almost always focusing exclusively on financial aspects of retirement. Benchmark Training has set out to improve upon and complement pre-retirement seminars by helping those who are about to make what is arguably their biggest career move transition seamlessly into a new lifestyle filled with possibilities and opportunities.
It has been said that if you’re green, you’re growing and if you’re ripe, you’re dying. Planning for Life after Retirement will give you the tools you need to grow and thrive as you move toward retirement. Retirement is not only an ending of a career; it’s a beginning of a new stage of life that should be carefully considered and planned. It’s also the beginning of a slew of “maybes”. Maybe you want to continue working, but in a different capacity. Maybe you want to start a small business or a non-profit. Maybe you want to volunteer. Maybe you want to dive head-first into your favorite hobby. Maybe you want to travel the world. Maybe you want to mentor youth. Maybe you want to do as little as possible. Maybe, maybe, maybe…
No matter what your maybes are, this practical, dynamic program will help you identify your goals, objectives and next steps toward your new lifestyle. You will walk away from this training energized, enthusiastic, and excited about the future.
