Refire! Don’t Retire

When faced with the prospect of getting older, you can be optimistic, pessimistic, or realistic. But just because you add a few extra candles to a cake doesn’t mean your life is over!

No matter what viewpoint you have, Ken Blanchard and Morton Shaevitz want to help you make a positive transition from where you are to where you’re going by showing you how to infuse passion and zest into every area of your life. In their book Refire! Don’t Retire, Ken and Morton define refirement as approaching life with gusto and seeing each day as an opportunity for adventure and learning. The primary focus is not on solely career advancement, financial gain, and grand achievements—but also on healthy living, revitalized relationships, continued learning, and a personally meaningful sense of spirituality.

Set aside time to listen in as Ken and Morton share humor, practical information, and profound wisdom—and be inspired to make all the years ahead truly worth living. Rather than viewing your later years as a time to endure, discover why they can be a time of exciting opportunity. Both research and common sense confirm that people who embrace these years with energy and gusto—rather than withdrawing and waiting for things to happen—consistently make the rest of their lives the best of their lives.

The workplace has become more diverse: mentors and mentees come from very different backgrounds and have limited understanding of each other’s cultures and outlooks. But mentoring remains the most powerful tool for creating meaningful relationships, furthering professional development, and increasing engagement and retention.

Join Lisa and Lois on February 27th at 2:30 pm (EST) to gain insight into increasing your own self-awareness and preparing to embrace and leverage differences within mentoring relationships. If you've ever wondered how to bridge the diversity gaps in your mentoring relationships, this webinar is for you! Learn more and register here.
