The New Retirement

Brian Lambier, Career Vitality Popular presenter Brian Lambier will be at the Crowfoot Library on Wednesday, March 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. talking about new and traditional models of retirement.

In his retirement transition workshops, Brian has found people's concerns tend to fall under the following common themes:

  • How do I move from deriving a great deal of my personal identity from "what I do" to "who I am?"
  • I want to continue to work after I retire from my present job. What work options do I have?
  • I have been working for 30 plus years. How do I fill my time once I retire?
  • How do I balance my retirement plans with additional family responsibilities? (e.g., children, caregiving)

The New Retirement will focus on an overview of the traditional and new models of retirement, as well as a presentation of 15 factors in the key life arenas of self, family/relationships, work/career, leisure, health/wellness, spirituality/personal development and finance that will help attendees better understand the steps they need to take to plan and live a successful retirement.

Below are some books on the topic of retirement transitions (and managing change in general):
