Retirement with Purpose Toolkit
Are you looking to transform your readiness and motivation to plan your retirement?
It doesn’t matter which stage of your life or career you’re at, the earlier you start the process of planning and researching, the easier, smoother and less stressful the transition of moving into later life will be.
If you’ve been struggling to understand what retirement could look like, and how to manage your career transition pre- and post-retirement, then the Retirement with Purpose Toolkit is for you.
This self-guided, online programme includes articles and practical workbooks to deep dive into what retirement means and looks like to you. Complemented by UK-based resources, this is a great starting point to research and explore.
Grouped into 5 short sections, the Retirement with Purpose Toolkit can be completed at your own pace and in any order.
- Understanding the emotional and psychological impact of retirement
- Exploring how work can play a part in your retirement
- Generating ideas and options
- Resource Library
- Next steps
It brings together the essence of Sarah’s invaluable guidance, powerful coaching questions and practical, go-to resources she shares with all her 1:1 clients as part of her retirement transition coaching service.

Surprisingly challenging and thought-provoking! I really liked the mix of questions that made me think hard about how I wanted to manage my career in the run up to retiring in the next 18 months. It’s also provided some great conversation starters with my partner about what we both want to experience in our later years.
I knew I didn’t want to stop working but I really wanted to do something different from my high-pressured IT career. Some of the Toolkit’s coaching questions and activities made me stop and think differently about work, but also my health and relationships with my family. I’m certainly more curious and hopeful about what my next steps will be.
At the age of 61 I knew that I still had a lot to give in my working life. I am just not ready for doing nothing! I worked my way through the Toolkit as part of the 1:1 transition coaching with Sarah. I now have a clearer plan and a revamped job search strategy to make it happen!
