1 day workshop + takeaway toolkit + online support
= a new lease of life for mature people in your organisation.

    Making use of experience
"A number of promising approaches appear underutilized across almost all industries. For example, a focus on making better use of the accumulated experience of older employees and building an ageless workforce
barely register among proposed workforce strategies."

Fuzzy goals?   Time to re-focus?    

Creating Value
"… [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 Workshop provides an opportunity for mature people in your organisation to gain a new lease of life. They may be starting to think about retirement or may simply want to be "retyred"- get some new life traction and work satisfaction by sharing their knowledge and experience with younger colleagues.

It is an R55 version of the Focus on Your Future® programme, a simple but effective goal-setting and goal-getting process. The SilverFocus Workshop provides practical resources for achieving new personal, family and work goals appropriate to the Third Age.

The programme consists of the FOCUS Self-Manager, a takeaway toolkit for setting and getting new goals, a one day User's Workshop and online peer support for reinforcement

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, especially with younger colleagues who have leadership potential.
The Focus Self-Manager
 "You are today where you thoughts brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you..." James Allen

The FOCUS Self-Manager facilitates both goal-setting and goal-getting by enabling participants to crystallize goals in all areas-personal, family/social and work-and to break them down into manageable time-spans. As a big picture, goals-formatted "mini whiteboard" it complements digital devices which can handle the details of daily scheduling and activities but lack the unifying Big Picture perspective.
