More and more, Baby Boomers are seeking new opportunities to participate in their community through paid work, volunteer work and civic engagement. Dr. Suzanne Cook coined the term "redirection" to refer to the new stage of life as individuals seek their next challenge and transfer their skills, experience and talents into a new direction. Dr. Cook returns to the Bolton branch to offer a 6-part workshop series on later life career changes. A different topic will be covered each week to help participants explore and redirect into new roles that are personally meaningful. Weekly topics will include: The new you, Plotting my journey, I am a community leader, Work options and opportunities. As a participant you will:
1. Apply the redirection process to your life to streamline the transition into a new direction.
2. Map your leadership traits to determine who you are as a leader.
3. Explore and research work and volunteer opportunities that offer personal meaning and rewards.
4. Assess where you want to use your skills in the community to meet your needs.
5. Build relationships with potential community partners to maximize impact.
6. Develop an action plan for your redirection to meet your objectives.
