Going Gracefully: Developing an Exit Strategy
Are you considering retiring, making a career move or going back to school? That means in the near future you will be walking out the door of your organization or business for the last time. You are on the threshold. This program will help you make a smooth transition into your new life by guiding you through four steps:
(1) opening the door in front of you (paying attention to finances, transition, routines and opportunities);
(2) seeing the untapped potential of what lies ahead (relationships, hobbies, lifelong learning, unfulfilled dreams);
(3) stepping across the threshold (actions for a graceful exit, including unfinished projects, people to mentor, ways to get closure); and,
(4) closing the door behind you (identifying the values, connections, accomplishments and skills you are taking with you).
