Many people develop a financial retirement plan, but stop there. Once you take care of retirement finances it’s time to start taking care of yourself.
Successful retirement planning starts with envisioning your new lifestyle.
Retirement Linkages offers nonfinancial retirement coaching for retirees and those close to retiring. Lyn Christenson helps people plan and build a successful retirement lifestyle with personal coaching and workshops.
This is your life to dream and create. I am here to help guide you through the process.
My passion is to make an impact in the lives of retired people and help them make an impact through their retirement.
A society where people can continue to contribute in meaningful ways after retiring from full time work.
Lyn is a thoughtful listener whose approach to coaching is to build trust, listen carefully, elicit core values, and guide clients to a plan which best matches their own needs.
With over 25 years of coaching and career advising in Silicon Valley companies, I am an expert listener, communicator and value sharing focused, practical advice.
The biggest transformations I see are with clients ready for a transition and are:
not ready to close their working life
inspired and ready to renew, reinvent or make a long wished for career transition
almost ready to retire and have a financial plan ready
retired and wondering “what’s next?”
professional type volunteers, second act career-oriented, and not living your father or mother’s retirement!
I am a certified retirement coach with 25 years’ experience in storytelling and helping clients succeed
My interest and expertise in coaching, and career advising, comes from 25 years’ experience as a senior executive in Silicon Valley. Directing and mentoring communications teams for a number of leading life science companies across large global companies and startups showed me that people have many different motivators in life. Working with nonprofits and social services over many years, I saw first-hand how planning and positivity can truly help drive happiness. I also discovered the real benefit of training volunteers to be the most effective members of your team. Volunteers are more engaged when they can lend their time and expertise to directly benefit others.
