What is Start with WHY for Retirees

You’ve already had a full career and now you’re contemplating what could be next for an encore chapter. Sometimes, the best way to plan ahead is to, first, look back.

This interactive class is designed to walk you, step-by-step, through the process to find your WHY – your personal purpose, cause or belief. You will explore who you have been when at your natural best, throughout your life and career, so that you can design your next chapter on your own terms. You will work in a community of like-minded peers to help one another put into words the cause you care most about advancing and how you can use your life and career as a vehicle to do so. It takes a willingness to be open, to share personal stories and to trust the process. And through it all, we’re there to help.

In this class you will:

  • Unpack the concept of The Golden Circle from Start With Why and apply it to your next life chapter
  • Collaborate with a peer to discover and develop your WHY statement in a 1:1 environment
  • Explore the talents and skill sets that tend to improve with age
  • Benefit from live coaching to help you improve and apply your WHY statement

Donna strives to break new ground, so that we’re engaged in things that matter, while pondering what’s next. She’s a conversation catalyst who facilitates dynamic peer-to-peer forums to help organizations learn what’s top-of-mind for customers now and where they’re heading next. She’s also founder of Retirepreneur.com, a think tank for professionals age 55 who are striving for a smooth segue from traditional job to freelance consulting gig, doing work they enjoy.

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
