Career Transition

What does career transition entail?

 

The accelerating pace of change requires companies and individuals to anticipate, adapt and act with agility.

 

Career transition can arise from disruption, outsourcing, offshoring, restructuring, transfers, life shifting, self-search for purpose: these are all strategic initiatives that impact a company's and individual’s vital resources.

 

Our comprehensive and modular services guide the individual from the end of a career cycle, or life change, to the consideration of career options and/or new professional and life projects – for a corporate role, an entrepreneurial project, a portfolio career, or (early)retirement. This is achieved through highly personalized support in the form of one-to-one coaching sessions, advice and various resources (tax, financial and legal in the event of severance pay, an entrepreneurial project or retirement).

 

Our programs are tailored to the unique needs and challenges of each individual. A real, dynamic commitment to orchestrating and efficiently transforming one's professional heritage into a sustainable future aligned with one's aspirations anchored in the reality of the job market/economic context.

Program & Workshop Retirement

Retirement represents a major life change for most people, and it can bring about many emotions, from excitement and happiness, to stress and uncertainty. After experiencing an intense and successful track record within an organization, one may be facing the transition towards retirement aware of the need to strike a new balance in life. Retirement can mean many things and our perception thereof is radically shifting. Global aging is about much more than demographics, it is most importantly about mindset. Today, retirement is viewed less as an ending, than as a transition from one chapter of life to another.
