Positive Coach Update

Throughout Owen’s first season as an Assistant Coach with the Downingtown East High School Boys Lacrosse team, it was exciting to have a “behind the scenes view” of the big wins and the tough losses.  Although the D East Cougars’ journey ended in the second round of the District Playoffs, the entire season appeared to be a fun and impactful experience for all the young men involved (including Owen). 

 It was a prime example for how the work we do in our community fuels and shapes much of the work that we do in the office. Congratulations on a great season!

Retirement Mentor Program

While many Americans look forward to retirement, they often find themselves unprepared for the dramatic changes it brings to their lives. Fewer Americans are “very satisfied” in retirement and in an effort to change that, at least on a small scale, Financial Coach has created the Financial Coach Retirement Mentorship program.  By leveraging our network of clients and friends, we hope to create connections between those approaching retirement and those already retired to provide coaching and firsthand perspective on the retirement transition. 

We look forward to launching this program and sharing our progress with you.  Please reach out to Jeff or Meghan directly with any questions.

Total Leadership by Stew Friedman

Through a career of research, teaching, and personal coaching, Stew Friedman, an organizational psychologist at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, has met many people who feel unfulfilled because they are forsaking performance in one or more aspects of their lives. They aren’t bringing their full self to all of their life domains—work, home, community, and self.  Friedman’s book, Total Leadership, helps readers explore how they can integrate these domains to lead a fuller (or more total) life.
