Adding Structure and Direction Stop Drifting Into an Unsatisfying Retirement


Welcome to Change Makers, the podcast brought to you by me with co-host Lisa Sharps.

What you’re about to hear is an unscripted, in-the-moment coaching session with a real person who feels stuck or unfulfilled in their life and wants to change, but they don’t know how.

In this episode, we hear from Rachel, a recent retiree who finds herself drifting through her new-found spare time. Rachel recently finished a long and successful career as a head teacher where she doubled the size of her school and enjoyed the push and pull of a full and varied workplace. And, as you will hear in this episode, the ‘freedom’ of retirement has left Rachel feeling a bit ‘all a sea’; drifting from day to day with no direction.

Which, as someone who is used to a lot of structure, this can be a very uncomfortable place to be.

During this expert coaching session, I and Rachel work through the various challenges that a lack of consistency is creating for Rachel and they work towards creating a self-managed plan that can be implemented to give back that much-needed daily framework.

There’s even a great exercise where I make Rachel move into different positions in order to change her physiology which positively effects her psychology… if you have never heard about the benefits of imaginary waterskiing this is the episode for you!

In this show, you will hear:

  • Me using various techniques to get Rachel to consciously decide how she wants to view retirement
  • Rachel reveals what she would really like to do with her time once she has structure in place
  • How time freedom has enabled Rachel to find her inner creativity

In this show I talk to my guests in a one-to-one unscripted coaching session while my co-host Lisa Sharp, listens in, expertly pausing the conversation at key moments to quiz me on the coaching methods and techniques that she is using – all to help create a successful outcome for these goal-driven coachees who want more out of life.

If you have ever wondered what actually happens in a live coaching session with an experienced, qualified and accredited professional leadership and life coach, then this is the show for you.

This podcast will help you to dare to dream, destroy your demons and design a new life.

No matter what the situation, you always change how you think, feel and respond to it.

At this point, it’s my job to step back and let them make a choice.
