New video project: Your input requested
Got a minute? I’d like to get your input for a new project I’m developing: a series of free, short videos about retirement that will be publicly available online. It will address questions that lawyers and other professionals have asked me over the last few years about preparing for, transitioning into, and improving retirement. It will also deal with issues that law firms have asked about how to discuss retirement, support lawyers who decide to retire, and manage partner succession and client transitions.
I would welcome your responses to brief survey that you can access here. It should take you no more than a minute. It asks you to check off topics you would like to hear about and to add any others that interest you. There are 2 sets of topics – one for people thinking about their own retirement, the other for people who lead, manage or support retiring partners. You may answer either or both sets.
If you would like to discuss any of the questions in greater depth, or if you would like me to call you to discuss my retirement book, course, or services, please contact me.
Collaboration is a hallmark of design thinking, which is at the heart of my book and e-course, Retirement by Design. Thank you for taking a moment to collaborate with me in creating my Retirement by Design video series.
