Re-energize, Reimagine and Reinvent: Crafting the Next Chapter of Your Work and Life

Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Mid to late career for highly-motivated individuals can be a time of stress and transition, but also a chance to reflect, re-energize, and reimagine work and life. Recent research in the fields of life span development and positive psychology highlights that the old paradigm and mindset of gradual decline into the retirement years is no longer accurate or helpful.

In this webinar, Drs. Stephanie and Russ Eisenstat shared a high-level roadmap as well as practical first steps participants can take to move towards higher levels of intentionality and fulfillment in the mid to late stages of their careers. The webinar also provided an introduction to a course that will be offered, starting in February, for those interested in more deeply engaging in this work. Using a disciplined evidenced based approach, course participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their personal journey and distinctive strengths as the foundation for reimagining the path forward, and proactively shaping a more meaningful and rewarding next chapter.
