Our culture is often accused of providing little in the way of solid advice for aging well and growing old with purpose. In fact, retirement is frequently characterized as a time of all leisure and no purpose. Richard Leider insists that having a reason to get up every morning will make you happier and healthier. Helping people find their purpose has been Leider’s life mission. He encourages people to navigate a purposeful path from adulthood to elderhood with choice, curiosity, and courage. His coaching is intended to offer a purposeful path for living well while aging well.
When we were young, people asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Now that we are grown up, the question arises, “Who do you want to be when you grow old?” That is the key question this presentation hopes to answer. Purposeful aging is not a luxury for the few but is accessible to all and fundamental to health, happiness and longevity.
This presentation is intended to help attendees navigate the transition from adulthood to elderhood, learn new mindsets and practices to grow whole–not old–and learn about purposeful transitions in all stages of life and ideas for “life reimagined.”
Leider will conduct an online presentation followed by a conversation with Terry Minger on personal and organizational longevity in the Vail Valley.
