What do you think of when you think of “retirement”? Is it about slowing down, stepping aside, withdrawing into an extended period of leisure? As Dean explains, this typical view of retirement is a historical anomaly, based upon the experience of a single generation in American history: the Greatest Generation. With the increases in life expectancy and economic insecurity, it’s time to rethink what we expect retirement to mean. Dean Waggenspack is a career/life coach, speaker and blogger about careers. Coaching is his third career, having worked for nearly 30 years in the corporate world and taught high school previously. Dean’s passion is to “encourage others to look inside themselves so that they realize as much of their potential as they are ready for, at this time”. A curiosity about what a person currently does, and the opportunity to discover “what’s next” for them in life, are what drive him. He and his wife, Rose, live in Kettering and have four grown children. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
