About the Course:

As legions of baby boomers approach retirement age, this important call to action outlines the steps to thriving as an older worker in a newly defined work world. Dispelling the stereotypes of aging that prevail in our culture, Helen Harkness champions a radical approach to aging and working for the new century. With inspiring stories of people who created their most satisfying careers at an age when others were being “put out to pasture,” Harkness shatters the myth that growing older equals biological, mental, psychological, and creative decline and encourages us instead to reset our career clocks. Her book charts a clear course for rethinking our future and finding career fulfillment in later life, with exercises, self-assessments, and worksheets for each step along the way. Practical information shows readers how to find the order in the chaos of our Information Age, shake loose from old stereotypes to creatively integrate aging and working, tell time differently—functionally, not chronologically—and develop success criteria and the action steps needed to get there.

This course is based on the book, Don’t Stop the Career Clock: Rejecting the Myths of Aging for a New Way to Work in the 21st Century created by Helen Harkness, Ph.D. in 0.
