FOR LIFE AFTER 40

SHIFTING FROM

“IS THIS IT?”

TO

“THIS IS IT!”

Being in your 40’s or 50’s in today’s world is not easy. You’re constantly reminded that the younger generations are taking over the world, and your body is starting to change in ways that you never thought it would, and yet you feel like your life is just getting started. You know that your most productive and impactful years are still ahead of you, so you sometimes feel disillusioned when you’re one of the older people in the room.

This age group is not as traditional as the Boomers. We’re technically savvy, but not always as much as our younger Millennial counterparts. I call  us the “sandwich generation” because we really bridge the older, pre-internet world with the world of the digital natives. Finding and staking your place in society in your 40’s and 50’s can be tricky and hard to make sense of. I will help you navigate this next phase of your life.

I help people in their 40’s and 50’s become

even more purposeful, engaged, and relevant

for the rest of their lives.

LET’S focus on THESE CORE AREAS…

Perpetual Relevance

How do you remain relevant in your 40’s and 50’s in a world where technology and being forever young rule the culture? The golden years of the 80´s and 90´s are over. I will help you discover your superpowers that will propel you into relevance for decades to come in your personal life as well as your career.

GENERATIONS & AGING

Your body may be showing signs of aging at a rate that is equal to your high life energies and passion. And at work, your boss might be significantly younger than you, maybe even looking forward to you “retiring.” I will help you take control of the emotional and logical aspects of aging that work in your favor for decades to come.

TECHNOLOGY

You’re not just competing with the Millennials and Gen-Z groups for coveted opportunities, you’re also competing with technologies that will continue to take over the workforce. In addition, keeping up with technologies that keep us all connected with family, friends and colleagues will continue to be critical for all ages. I will help you learn how to leverage technology to your advantage for decades to come.

 TO FULLY EMPOWER you IN THESE…

Personal

Men and women in their 40’s and 50’s are typically dealing with a number of personal changes. From kids in college to leaving college, to understanding the physical changes we’re going through, to being excited yet confused about where the second half of our lives will take us, we’ve got a lot on our minds. We’re worried about how to stay relevant, how to reinvent ourselves for the foreseeable future, and how to deal with the interesting aging process that isn’t aligned with our amazing energy levels and passions.

I will help you discover where you’re stuck, why, and how to unblock your passions for the best years of your life, which are ahead of you.

Career / Business

 There’s never been a more awkward time to be in your 40’s and 50’s in the workplace. You may feel like you’re more energized, young and focused at work than ever, with more to contribute and value to add than at any previous point. But you may also feel like you’re being considered old by your younger colleagues who could very well be your boss.

Or, you may feel unmotivated and marginalized at work, possibly even the victim of ageism even though you feel great. I will help you discover where your best professional contributions lie in the next phase of your life, and help you get there feeling even more empowered than ever before.

 

 COACHING PRACTICE

Confidentiality & Ethics

As an ICF certified coach, I understand and uphold the ICF Code of Ethics in all of our coaching relationships. This includes providing all clients with information on how to contact ICF if there is ever a perception that coaching ethics have been compromised.

Confidentiality is core to what I do. The content of any and all coaching conversations and tools are strictly confidential. Unless legally required by law enforcement officials to share coaching information under extremely rare conditions, confidentiality is non-negotiable. 

The Coaching Process

Below is the coaching process we typically engage in with clients. Although flexible and customizable, this is a tried-and-true process that works well in most cases.

  1. Hold a complimentary get-to-know-you session to assess mutual right fit
  2. Sign the coaching engagement contract and agreements
  3. Hold the client intake session
  4. Conduct assessments / personality test as needed
  5. Review the completed assessments and feedback, and define coaching goals based on those results
  6. Conduct a pre-determined number of coaching sessions
  7. Conduct goal progress and overall coaching check-ins at pre-determined milestone dates
  8. End of engagement: Measure and communicate the impact of the coaching engagement, and discuss continued coaching depending on your needs
Qualifications & Certifications

Coaching is an unregulated field, meaning that anyone can start a coaching business regardless of their experience or capabilities. It also means that pretty much anyone can hold a coaching class and hand out ” coaching certifications.” In that sense, even hiring a certified coach can be risky.

The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the coaching industry’s global gold standard for administering highly stringent certifications and also creating and upholding a very comprehensive code of ethics. Hiring an ICF certified coach gives you the peace of mind that you’re hiring a professional who has gone through a very rigorous training program.

I am not only ICF certified, but all hold advanced coaching certifications from the College of Executive Coaching, have advanced degrees in relevant fields, hold a variety of other coaching and leadership-related certifications, and have over 20 years of leadership experience. Click here to learn more about my background.

Prices & Fees

Although I have pricing guidelines for established coaching programs, there’s no “one size fits all” that meets all client needs. I offer a range of coaching programs depending on your needs. Please contact us or schedule a call to discuss your specific coaching goals.

Programs & Inclusions

Coaching engagements are either 9 or 12 months, and can include either two or four coaching sessions per month. Clients are expected to make further progress by completing “homework” between sessions. Based on client needs, programs can include between-session email support, and shorter phone support calls. Coaching programs are tailored to client needs and goals.

Satisfaction Guarantee

I offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. During the first month, cancel at any time for a full refund. No refund is issued after the initial 30 days.

let’s get you…

focus

Do you know what you want to do with your life as you move through your 40’s and 50’s but life is getting in the way? Are you distracted by family or career obligations and unclear how to focus on your passions and dreams that will get you where you want to be? I get it. I will help you get the focus you need to move from a state of desire to a flow of action!

DIRECTION

Have you gone through your 30’s and some of your 40’s on auto-pilot, without really thinking about what’s next? Whether you’ve been wildly successful or not, you may be sure that your best years are ahead of you, but uncertain what will make you feel fulfilled. I will help you discover where your heart and mind will take you for this next phase of your life in ways that will make you feel more alive and empowered than ever.

MY STORY

I’ve been fortunate and blessed to have lived all over the world and been very successful in my professional career (click here for more about me). I’ve been physically fit most of my life, and enjoy a number of hobbies and social activities. But as I age, I’m fully aware that that way I feel on the inside – my passion for life, interests, and my energy levels – are going in the opposite direction of the numbers I see going up every birthday.

I’m not alone. In fact, I consider myself the norm. Those of us our 40’s and 50’s are getting older at a unique time in history, and it’s not easy. My goal on the personal coaching side of my business is to help my peers uncover how to move into the next phase of their lives even more purposeful, engaged and relevant than ever before. I hope I have the honor of being the coach to get you there.
