Retirement Coach Dorian Mintzer
 

Dr. Dorian Mintzer, owner of RevolutionizeRetirement.com, a retirement coaching firm, was recently quoted as an expert in a March 2015 article by Tobie Stangerin in Consumer Reports.

The article, Is Phased Retirement for You?, notes that over the next year, many older workers may have the chance to experiment with a cutting-edge workplace innovation: phased retirement. The federal government recently initiated a program to help pension-eligible federal workers ease their way out of longtime careers while preparing new workers to fill their positions.

Each agency must publish its own criteria for applicants, yet most have not. So, potential participants are sitting tight.

If your employer doesn't have a phased retirement program, the employee should try initiating one. Mintzer recommends evaluating your strengths and work preferences, and presenting a plan to your supervisor. "Show how you'll handle tasks you're best at and enjoy most, while shifting some work to others," Mintzer notes. "It helps, of course, if you're viewed as a worker who can't easily be replaced. Couch it in a diplomatic way, as in, `I want to explore the options,'" Mintzer advises.

Mintzer, M.S.W., Ph.D., B.C.C. (Board Certified Coach) has written about many topics pertaining to the second half of life and aging. She speaks to professional and community groups. As a coach, she helps 50-to-70 something women, men, and couples reinvent themselves in the next stage of life.

Mintzer combines her personal and professional experiences as a therapist, coach, teacher and speaker with her expertise in adult development, positive psychology and holistic life planning as she works to help people navigate the second half of life. She uses her energy, enthusiasm and passion and creates a dynamic learning environment that energizes and inspires her audiences and her clients.
