As we enter a new year and a new decade, I want to thank all of you, my subscribers, for the interest, ideas, feedback and support you have given me over the years. We have worked and talked together extensively about mentoring, sponsorship and other aspects of talent development, but a while ago, many of you began to express growing concerns about “next acts,” either your own or those of others in your firms. In response to those concerns, I added a new dimension to my practice that deals with defining, preparing for and transitioning into retirement. And now I’m excited to announce the publication of a new resource, a self-guided workbook, Retirement by Design.
Whenever you start to contemplate what you might do when you leave your current practice, this new book will help you decide what a great future might look like and then act to make it happen. It uses design thinking principles to make retirement planning a creative process that leads to a future you will move toward with enthusiasm, not anxiety.
You can read about and preorder copies of Retirement by Design here or through a link on my website. If you have any questions about it, or have any thoughts to share with me, I would love to hear from you!
