By supporting your employees in their 3rd Act planning, they’ll be happier, more productive, and excited to choose a date for retirement and stick with it.

Bringing in Retirement Life Coach Patricia Cavanaugh helps you…


Show your appreciation and care for your employees with a unique, valuable experience.


Start conversations around retirement through the lens of opportunity and achievement.


Provide proven strategy, solid tools, and actionable steps to facilitate retirement transitions.

After working in the same office with familiar surroundings, colleagues, and tasks, transitioning to retirement can be challenging. However, with guidance from experts, retirement can become and exciting experience, bringing with it a feeling of renewal, relevance and a sense of purpose and meaning.

If you want your employees to have a smooth passage into their retirement life, offer them retirement lifestyle planning. Give them an opportunity to create a plan that sets the stage for a happy and successful life in retirement.

No need to take this on yourself when you can easily outsource it by getting in touch with an expert in providing retirement transition coaching.

When we experience a new stage in life, having a mentor or guide to help make sense of the changes can lift the level of stress and anxiety. When we feel more clarity and optimism about our future, we can improve our present day performance. A retirement life coach can assist your employees in planning a seamless shift into retirement.

It is an exceptional organization that realizes the need for pre-retirement planning for their older employees. Merely traditional corporate financial retirement planning is not enough today because most people have 20 to 30 more years of living after leaving regular work. Organizations that promote the well-being of their employees after their retirement are implementing the very best human resource practices. Get assistance from The 3rd ACT to offer guidance to your employees as they transition into this new phase of life.

What Others Are Saying About our Retirement Transition Coaching

“Instead of feeling only loss and worry, I see this as an opportunity to live my ideal life.”

I was lucky enough for my employer to engage Patricia to coach me both before and after my retirement.  There were moments when I was so thankful that she was there guiding me into this new stage of my life.  I felt supported throughout.  Not only did she ask thought provoking questions but she also helped me see the possibilities of this 3rd act and that I had control over its trajectory.  At the same time, she had me honor my career and accept leaving it behind me.   She helped me to see this transition as the first time in my life when I had a blank canvas and it’s up to me to decide how to fill it.  Equally important, I learned I can rewrite this plan anytime.  Instead of feeling only loss and worry, I see this as an opportunity to live my ideal life.  I feel much appreciation for Patricia’s help in launching me off on this new phase of my life.
