Without skilled guidance, a maturing workforce can reduce productivity in many ways. Employees in mission-critical functions may fail to pass their knowledge and experience on to those who will replace them. Senior workers, feeling relegated to the sidelines, may no longer give that extra effort required to meet increasingly demanding goals. If resentful, they may actually withhold knowledge from younger workers who, in their frustration, may leave for more promising opportunities.
The Center for Third Age Leadership specializes in helping organizations maximize productivity by ensuring critical skills, experience and knowledge are fully utilized and transferred. Older workers need to understand and embrace new roles as guides and mentors, and younger workers must accelerate their learning of new skills while still performing at a high level in their current roles. Our Third Age Planning™ products work by helping both organizations and individuals maximize the value of experience and maturity.
People first have to see a new possibility. Many participants see the years from 50-75 through disturbing images of declining relatives or friends. Cultural glorification of youth further distorts this picture. We show people how to shed their negative stereotypes of aging and accept the myriad possibilities Third Age offers.
To capitalize on a new possibility, people must turn it into a vision that is both personally powerful and specific. We help our clients envision compelling Third Age futures for themselves, and these visions inspire their journey forward.
Planning the transition to one’s Third Age is important work. Our approach offers a rational framework, creative techniques, challenge exercises, implementation tools and a variety of ongoing support options. Together these help our clients build a rich and rewarding Third Age for themselves and all those around them.
