One meaning of our lives is how we respond to what it presents us. Another is to exercise our freedom to proactively define it by acting upon a foundation of character and purpose.

The Ongoing Personal Need for Relevance…

An Unspoken But Common Impediment to Ending Your Career.

The anticipation and the actual experience of the end of one’s career is a major life Transition for which traditionally there has not existed the means to prepare for in a comprehensive manner. Beyond the usual concerns most of us think about, there are others that are profound, often unspoken and commonly experienced.

Reasons I encounter frequently

As I mentor colleagues, consult and speak publicly about end of career Transition, I find that there are several obstacles that prevent many from exercising the opportunity to end one’s career and Transition to the next phase of life. These are some prominent reasons:

I was privileged to be interviewed for a three part series of articles appearing in Plastic Surgery News (PSN) that discuss what plastic surgeons experience as they prepare to end their career.

I discuss my methodology of helping colleagues though this major life event by mentoring in a way that is innovative and unique.

This comprehensive method is based on the perspective of a colleague who has been through a sudden end of career.  It includes a new way of thinking about personal, and professional concerns as well managing as a myriad of practice issues.  This includes planning and implementing a staged execution of your end of career.  The benefit is anticipating and living a positive experience that I characterize as a Transition that results in lasting personal renewal and fulfillment.

The Practice Transition Course for Physicians – Coming in early December!

I am pleased to announce that I will be releasing my new online course in the next few days: The Practice Transition Course for Physicians.

I learned from my personal Transition experience, in depth study as well as from mentoring other colleagues that there is a real need for a method to learn how to design and execute your Transition plan.  Where one has not previously existed, now it does in the form of this innovative and comprehensive online course.

Well before the projected end date most of you are aware that you have not had the means to prepare.  Most of us also feel the uncertainty and anxiety that goes along with knowing that the end of our professional career is a very challenging life Transition. This convenient course will guide you to create a positive Transition characterized by renewal and fulfillment!

Check here over the next few days for complete information.

I will be presenting a workshop based on my new online course: The Practice Transition Course for Physicians.
