You might also find my latest guide valuable as well. Solving The Real Retirement Crisis highlights the need and opportunity for coaches as well as issues that individuals, couples and organizations are facing!
Overall, our program stands out from others in several ways. First, it is the Retirement Coaching industries only recognized designation. Other programs only offer a certificate of completion rather than an actual designation. Our CPRC letters can not only be placed after your name on business cards and emails but also used as a mark of credibility when meeting with clients or organizations.
Second, the program provides coach training. We use aspects of positive psychology, behavioral economics, and other framework tools to not only educate but also empower our students with the most up to date and useful information. Many other programs simply train you on an assessment or the use of other tools rather than actual coaching skills and techniques.
Another big differentiator is our marketing program and connection to a vibrant community. Our program includes a marketing platform to help you lauch your business and includes one year membership into the Retirement Coaches Association. No one else gives you anything even close to that, leaving you to figure it out on your own.

Experience is making a comeback. Learn how to repurpose your wisdom.
At age 52, after selling the company he founded and ran as CEO for 24 years, rebel boutique hotelier Chip Conley was looking at an open horizon in midlife. Then he received a call from the young founders of Airbnb, asking him to help grow their disruptive start-up into a global hospitality giant. He had the industry experience, but Conley was lacking in the digital fluency of his 20-something colleagues. He didn't write code, or have an Uber or Lyft app on his phone, was twice the age of the average Airbnb employee, and would be reporting to a CEO young enough to be his son. Conley quickly discovered that while he'd been hired as a teacher and mentor, he was also in many ways a student and intern. What emerged is the secret to thriving as a mid-life worker: learning to marry wisdom and experience with curiosity, a beginner's mind, and a willingness to evolve, all hallmarks of the "Modern Elder."
In a world that venerates the new, bright, and shiny, many of us are left feeling invisible, undervalued, and threatened by the "digital natives" nipping at our heels. But Conley argues that experience is on the brink of a comeback. Because at a time when power is shifting younger, companies are finally waking up to the value of the humility, emotional intelligence, and wisdom that come with age. And while digital skills might have only the shelf life of the latest fad or gadget, the human skills that mid-career workers possess--like good judgment, specialized knowledge, and the ability to collaborate and coach - never expire.
Part manifesto and part playbook, Wisdom@Work ignites an urgent conversation about ageism in the workplace, calling on us to treat age as we would other type of diversity. In the process, Conley liberates the term "elder" from the stigma of "elderly," and inspires us to embrace wisdom as a path to growing whole, not old. Whether you've been forced to make a mid-career change, are choosing to work past retirement age, or are struggling to keep up with the millennials rising up the ranks, Wisdom@Work will help you write your next chapter.
