Realize Your Post-Career Life





LGW Member Emily Rothberg (`02) is teaming with us to lead a dynamic full-day workshop on May 3 for late-career leaders. To help you plan for and realize your unique Post-Career Life, Emily will share her next chapter framework and guide you through a highly interactive, self-reflective process to help you prepare for what’s next after a rewarding career or business. The program will include a rich mix of content-sharing, full-group discussion, breakouts, and individual reflection. You will leave with your own customized career transition plan.

At the workshop you and other participants will join together to explore fears, regrets, and possibilities; define and celebrate your unique legacy; and take a hard look at how this transition will impact your identity, the people with whom you now spend your time, and the structure of your day – all informing what truly matters for you going forward.

You will gain support and fresh perspectives from others’ challenges and insights, and leave with greater clarity and renewed possibilities – plus, your customized Post-Career Life Plan© with concrete steps to further your transition journey.  

Whether you’re at the pinnacle of your career, or newly retired, please join us to explore and plan for your Post-Career Life!
