THE TAKEAWAY: What do you yearn for? Not too many people ask themselves this question in their ‘encore’ years. For Life Coach Josephine Withers this is the start of an exploration and the beginning of an action plan. Attendees were asked to role played coaching and discovered the power of this question. The goal is to give ourselves permission for a personal renaissance in this phase of life. It became also clear that this personal journey needs policy support – that means the environment has to enable older adults – from curb cuts to elevator doors that close slowly. Much work still has to be done!
