Learn secrets to a rewarding retirement

Posted

Explore ways to ensure your post-career life can be the healthiest, most productive and fulfilling time of your life.

"What's Next? Discover a Purposeful Retirement" is a program hosted by the Highlands Ranch Metro District's Active Adult group. It takes place from 6-8 p.m. Jan. 10 at the district's office, 62 Plaza Drive, Highlands Ranch. The fee is $10.

Studies have shown that 90 percent of pre-retirees expect to be happy and 81 percent expect to achieve their dreams in retirement, according to a news release. In reality, only 40 percent feel that way 2-5 years into their retirement years. This two-hour interactive workshop is designed to help close this gap by preparing for the non-financial aspects of retirement.

Certified retirement and career transition coach Gary Foster will lead discussions and exercises designed to inspire you to craft your own plan for healthy aging and a purposeful third-stage of life. Discussions will include:

• Understanding how and why retirement is changing

• Raising awareness of the potential pitfalls of an unplanned retirement

• Learning the four pillars of a healthy, purposeful retirement

• Providing an action-based roadmap to the retirement you dreamed of

Foster is an executive recruiter and career coach who transitioned to working with those at or beyond the mid-point in life, according to the news release. He spent three decades working in the corporate world, and it was through these combined experiences he witnessed both the anxiety and unplanned nature of people entering into retirement.
