Celebrating 10 years in business

Join me in celebrating!

This year marks 10 years for me as owner and principal of Redworks Communications and Coaching.

Applying my 20+ years of communication experience doing strategic communications, planning and public relations, media coaching, facilitation, and training in the Saskatchewan market to support my clients through Redworks, has been an extremely gratifying process.

In the past 10 years, it has also been a privilege to see how coaching has helped to support clients improve their thinking, gain clarity, and create positive and powerful changes to achieve their greatest potential.

As a certified Results Coach and accredited professional coach, I have had the honour of coaching not only individuals, but also teams – to improve their group performance and achieve corporate goals with measurable results.

I specialize in helping my clients change their thinking to create positive and powerful changes and achieve their greatest potential in both their personal and professional lives. I also support individuals and teams to increase trust by having better conversations using Conversational Intelligence™ frameworks and tools.

With a background in adult education and a passion for helping people live their extraordinary lives, I offer various group-coaching programs in planning for your retirement lifestyle; succession planning; the inner game: shifting a pervasive limiting belief; mid-life career change; life balance; stress management and self-care; change and transition; and creating the life you want.

Please send me a message today to find out how I can be of service to you!

Do you talk to your partner about retirement?

Many people have no idea when their partner is going to retire. They just know their own date of retirement.

Since retirement is a HUGE change in someone’s life and will certainly impact a relationship, it’s important to find out what you’re each thinking.

The best action to take is to talk about it openly and honestly and there is certainly a lot to discuss such as:

  • Potential retirement dates
  • Finances / budget / financial planning
  • Tax Planning
  • Insurance needs (house, health, disability, long-term care; etc.)
  • Medical, health and dental benefit plans
  • Revising or writing your Last Will and Testament; Living Will or Health Care Directive; Identifying Power of Attorneys for Financial and Health Care (Health Care Proxy); Trusts
  • Expectations and desires; and
  • Your bucket lists that each of you want to experience together as well as apart.

Once you know what each other is thinking then you will be in a much better position to start planning!

Another situation that can happen is that you have been retired for a few years and soon your better half will be joining you. This will certainly be a transition for both of you which could be difficult and rocky or smooth and exciting or a combination of all of these.

Someone recently told me, “It was on my husband’s first official day of retirement, when he wandered into the kitchen, and questioned my ability of how to fill the dishwasher.” They had a good talk afterwards to work out a few things! 🙂

Again, the more you communicate with your partner the better prepared you both will be – talk about expectations, boundaries, challenges, obstacles and the opportunities that will be available to the both of you!
