A Third Age Navigation Guide

"… [organisations ] create value not from physical resources but from the intelligence and competence of people… the intangible assets and the things people know and do." Dr. Karl-Erik Sveiby

The SilverFocus programme provides third age navigation tools for mature people in full-time employment who may be approaching retirement.

It is also for those who want to be "retyred", that is get some new traction in life by finding stimulating ways of sharing their knowledge, skills and experience with younger colleagues to benefit both parties and the wider organisation.

It consists of the Focus Self-Manager a big picture tool for setting and getting new goals, a User's Guide workshop and online peer support.

Revaluing Mature Knowledge
"Keeping active can increase your brain power".
Brain power peaks in the silver set

In an age awash with data and information SilverFocus helps to revalue the worth of mature knowledge and wisdom for organisations and the wider community. New neuroscience shows that most active older people are able to retain a highly relevant range of skills and knowledge honed by experience.

Enlightened organisations understand the benefits mature people can contribute by way of strategic thinking, mentoring, coaching and knowledge sharing, both with their peer group approaching retirement and with younger colleagues who have leadership potential.

But first they need to re-focus and get a new lease of life.

Despite slower brain speed, older people are less affected by hormonal swings and solve problems more effeciently, drawing on cognitive template of how they resolved past problems.

Expert knowledge, such as that associated with higher level skills, is stored in brain cells known as dendritic spines. These are a metaphorical silverlining which protects against ageing.

"Your ability to focus is the most important success skill you can ever develop"
Brian Tracy
