Life Stage Insights & Leadership Coaching for Adults Midlife and Better
Are you in the midst of a personal, health or career transition? Do you want your personal and professional leadership to feel more engaged, energetic and impactful? Are you roughly between 45 and 65 years old? You may not know it but you are firmly in the midst of a new life stage I call Middlescence. Through leadership coaching, engaging workshops and impactful speaking engagements, I can help you use your accumulated decades of experience to make this perhaps the most fulfilling and impactful time of your life. Youth is not wasted on the young; it is invested in them to prepare them for Middlescence!
My passion, as a gerontologist and coach, is to change our national conversation about what it means to be in midlife. The years we have added to our lives aren’t at the end – they are in the middle. These 20+ years are a brand new life stage no one has named or knows what to do with. Until now. I call it Middlescence.
Join me in a movement to change how we think about and live this new life stage. Find the power and potential to transform your life personally and professionally.
