Retirement Transitioning

Writing the next chapter

Many people don’t want to give up work entirely when they reach retirement age but they do want to spend their time differently, with a new blend of professional, voluntary and personal interests.

We work with Partners retiring from Professional Services Firms, CEOs, Directors and more junior staff to help them write their next chapter.  Whether they are interested in continuing to use their professional skills, changing direction, voluntary work or taking time out, we offer both practical advice and a sounding board to help them with this transition.

This is not only immensely helpful for the individual but also enables a much smoother handover for the organisation.

“The most helpful thing I found was the work around identifying my true personal values. This was a place of discovery and fixed in my mind where I might spend my energies in retirement.”

    Retirement Transitioning FAQs

    Do you offer pensions and financial advice?

    We don’t and would recommend that you talk to a suitably accredited financial adviser who can answer all of your queries on this.

    When should we start retirement coaching?

    For those in senior level roles we advise that retirement conversations and support should start 5 years prior to retirement to allow for succession planning and a more carefully managed exit from the business.

    For those in more junior roles, we would recommend 1-2 years before.
