Lifestyle Planning - Retirement


The traditional view of retirement just does not fit any more. Most of today’s employees who are over the age of 50 are looking for more balance between work and personal commitments. This comprehensive course covers many aspects of ‘third age’ planning and will assist you to identify the opportunities and take action that is deliberate and decisive.

Lifestyle Planning - Retirement

DETAILS:

One-day course delivered as an in-house workshop or one-to-one coaching programme.

OVERVIEW:

In the past 20 years there has been an increase of 288 per cent in the number of people aged over 65 years who are still in the workforce.

Retirement looks nothing like it did ten years ago when you left work with a gold watch and took up bowls the next day.

People are generally living longer and are more active past 65 than ever before — the idea of ‘slowing down’ can be a scary prospect. Some people aim to take early retirement, but what will this mean for the years ahead? Gradual retirement, consulting, volunteer work, starting a new business, travel and retraining are all possibilities.

This course provides the tools and information for people considering retirement or lifestyle change to explore their options and plan for their future. Delivery is flexible as either a one-to-one coaching programme or as a facilitated workshop depending on the needs of your organisation.

DESIGNED FOR:

This course is designed for employees aged 45 years and over who want to plan for eventual full or partial retirement and any associated lifestyle change.

BENEFITS:

  • Retirees often underestimate their financial needs leading into retirement and see their long list of ‘things I’ve been meaning to do’ as filling their days for the foreseeable future. However the impact of retirement and what that means to their sense of self and personal identity, and the reality of days stretching by with nothing in particular to achieve and possibly a tighter budget than anticipated can lead to depression, financial hardship and relationship strain. This course enables people considering retirement or lifestyle change to fully explore their options and plan for the implications and realities of exiting the workforce as they know it. The result is a positive future to plan for and enjoy and an easy transition into their new life.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

On completion of this coaching programme, participants will be able to…

  • Understand their personal readiness for retirement and know how their time will be best spent later in life
  • Understand various work options, know how to deal with any age issues and how to effectively blend leisure and work activities
  • Understand and plan for implications of aging and life outside of full-time employment including financial and legal considerations, health and fitness and living arrangements
  • Adopt a holistic view to planning retirement or lifestyle change and know how to positively manage the transition and beyond.

Customised workshops and tailored coaching programmes that are interactivepractical, results-focused and address pressure points.


FACILITATOR-LED WORKSHOPS

Our group workshops are designed to be highly people interactive and customised, led by subject-matter experts who incorporate specific examples and ‘pressure points’ from within your business, into their facilitation.​

In a workshop environment, the CDL facilitator is skilled at quickly building credibility, personal rapport and trust. Those who are easily distracted, ‘set in their ways’ or resistant to learning new skills and behaviours, are readily identified and directly re-engaged, motivated and re-focused.​

ONE-TO-ONE COACHING

Provided as a stand-alone coaching programme and facilitated by a subject-matter expert on a third party basis to delve deep into a particular need.

One-to-one coaching is also provided by CDL as part of a blended learning solution, typically following workshop activity or digital learning. Research affirms that 70% of learning comes from application, and CDL considers coaching to be an essential component for ensuring new skills and behaviour are readily applied back into real-life and workplace situations.​

I have engaged CDL for several years, both as an Organisational Design and Development Manager and in my current role as General Manager, Human Resources. We selected CDL exclusively from a large number of consulting firms to provide professional development assistance at general staff, senior management and executive management levels. The feedback has been universally positive and I can recommend CDL’s services wholeheartedly to any organisation undergoing large scale change.

CDL's working style, the skills of the facilitator, and the modular based approach, enabled us to tailor programme content and delivery within a unique learning context, to ensure it delivered the outcomes we sought. Thanks CDL, always a pleasure to work with you!

Janine Lipsys , HR Manager

I would have no hesitation in recommending CDL for Leadership Development coaching. The outcomes they have achieved through the tailored and confidential approach they take in balancing the professional needs of the individual with achieving a return on our investment as a business, has more than validated our decision to engage CDL.

Julie Millar , Partner

I have worked with CDL for a number of years now. They are responsive and adaptive in their approach and professional in their dealings. The feedback from individuals who use their service has always been positive and it is good to know that the assistance that CDL provides is valued.

HR Manager

One of the key benefits of using the professional services of CDL is the quality of their people, the flexibility and ease of use of the programmes they apply and the sensitive and empathetic approach they show to managers and staff. CDL is an organisation I can rely on to make a difference.

General Manager , Human Resources, Public Trust

We generate lasting results by creating learning environments where assumptions are challenged, and established ways of thinking are tested and adapted.

Distinctly different to providing one dimensional training or ‘off-the-shelf’ e-learning, we take the time to learn about your people, the company’s values and culture, and the results you need for the business vision to be realised.


Our highly experienced subject-matter experts facilitate customised workshops and tailored coaching programmes that are practical and results focused. To ensure relevance, we incorporate specific pain points experienced by your business and your people into our facilitation.

As part of any individual or group focused leadership or development intervention, we also guide managers in the critical role they have before, during and following the learning being provided to their employees. Simply put, we represent the research that demonstrates the learning modalities that ensure new skill and behaviour is applied and sustained for the long term.
