Is retirement about taking a permanent vacation or about rejecting traditional labels, ideas and thoughts so you can create the next big chapter of your life, regardless of your age? This episode explores how you can plan for and create the next chapter of your life at any age.
John Windsor is a certified coach as well as a Broadway star who has an MBA, a Silicon Valley VP, and best-selling author who’s reinvented himself so many times that he knows where all the pitfalls are. His latest and best-selling book is called F*ck Retirement: Don’t Settle for a Lesser Life in Your Later Years.
What John sees as the greatest unmet workplace wellbeing need
“The word that that latches on to my brain is 'respect.' And coupled with that, is seeing people as people. Not as the job that they do, or the role that they have, or the expectation. See them first as people. And, put down the armor about 'my job,' 'your job.' Forget about the zero sum games…The more that you co create with people, and the more you see them as a person…all kinds of things can be opened up in terms of interacting, and sharing and growing and creativity.”
“People are people. And we're in this together. [We can create] remarkable success when [we] treat people as people instead of just an employee. And it gets better for everybody when we do that.”
