Self-management in late career

Living and working without losing energy

With a great deal of life and work experience to draw on, the later stages in a career can be fascinating. You can use your experience in your work. You are adaptable and able to successfully tackle a wide variety of tasks. Fascinating and intense. Work requires you to be flexible, persevering and patient. Doing your job, guiding and coaching junior colleagues, developing new things, keeping in contact with colleagues and clients, keeping in touch with ever-changing rules and regulations, the 24-hour economy, the need to travel far and wide — all this is unlikely to lower your burden of work. And at your age it may occasionally be difficult to cope with that burden effectively. It is an uncomfortable truth that your energy and flexibility diminish over the years — confronting you with the uncomfortable fact that you simply can no longer do just anything you set your mind to.
Of course, it is not just people in the later stages of their career who are confronted with these problems. However, dropout figures clearly show that this specific group is most at risk. This training provides them with tools to maintain a vital and vigorous professional attitude.

Sometimes you feel as if you are walking on a tightrope, carefully balancing work and family, exertion and relaxation, giving and receiving energy. How are you supposed to maintain that balance? How do you keep your job enjoyable and interesting? How should you prepare for ‘getting on in years’? The answer lies in careful, attentive self-management. Our Group training course ‘Self-management in late career’ will provide guidance to retain a vigorous and energetic attitude toward your job
