My partners and I recently held a client appreciation event and asked Sara Zeff Geber, Ph.D., a Certified Retirement Coach, to be our speaker. Our first hint that Dr. Geber was going to be a big hit was the larger number of RSVPs from the previous year and then that every person who RSVPed showed up! Dr. Geber’s talk was entertaining and engaged our clients in an active discussion about what their next phase, beyond having to work for a living, would look like. She explored the issue of friends and colleagues at work that currently fill our lives and how that connection may change. She covered the challenges of relocation after retirement as well as many other topical issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Geber as speaker to anyone who needs a speaker for a preretirement or newly retired group.

Individual and Couples Coaching

LifeEncore has several popular coaching packages to help you make decisions and move forward in discovering a satisfying life for yourself in the future.  Packages are available for individuals and couples.  If you are part of a couple you may choose to get coaching together or on your own.  It will be productive and meaningful for you however you do it.

Coaching packages range from a single two-hour session that includes the Retirement Explorations Survey to 6 separate 1 to 1-1/2 hour sessions, spread out over a 6-9 month period. 

Included in all packages is the Retirement Exploration Survey (RES), an assessment of the gaps between how you currently see yourself and the plans you have made, and where you would like to be in the future.  The RES has proved to be a valuable instrument in helping individuals and couples focus on the most important aspects of planning for the retirement phase of their lives.  It is presented first as a questionnaire you answer online.  Your answers are then turned into a report, which you download and print.  In coaching, we review it together and use it as a starting point to explore retirement-related issues and pinpoint areas of concern.

To learn more about how LifeEncore can be of service to you, don’t hesitate to contact Sara by email or phone.
