Workshop Programs

Midlife Design’s expertise enables you to redesign your life’s key elements: career, relationships/family and lifestyle in a way that offers a fulfilling future focus through;

Reassessing your talent, strengths, values and vision. Years of being focused on a particular job or role for example, can mean that transferable abilities are blurred,

Refocusing for opportunities that are aligned with your identified talents,  values and vision. Outcomes can vary from a new career, own business, community and family involvements to creating a combination that balances stimulation and income needs.


 “TAKE CHARGE OF TOMORROW – beyond Midlife”

Our signature program Take Charge of Tomorrow  enables you to re-align your life’s key elements: career, relationships and lifestyle through identifying options and empowerment change strategies that sustain, excite and enrich by exploring:

  • Where I am now – Today
  • Where I want to be – Tomorrow’s Vision
  • How to get there – Targeting Tomorrow

The first half of life are busy years of establishing a career, mortgage and family. In midlife we experience a greater freedom from these establishment demands, while there can also be a sense of dissatisfaction and uncertainty about the future. As we are living twenty to thirty years longer there are choices and possibilities beyond the traditional concept of retirement to be explored. The “Take Charge of Tomorrow” program and manual enables participants to explore and plan their midlife and beyond work and life transition. Suitable for  individuals, couples and or organisational groups, as a coaching or group workshop program. As an individual or couple program “Take Charge of Tomorrow’ can be conducted face-to-face, by phone or interstate with Saturday morning appointments available. Price on application.   3269_Midlife_by_design_ebook_cover
