Encore : Finding Work that Matters in the Second Half of Life Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


In one of the most significant social trends of the new century, and the biggest transformation of the American workforce since the women's movement, members of the baby boom generation are inventing a new phase of work. Encore tells the stories of encore career pioneers who are not content, or affluent enough, to spend their next thirty years on a golf course.

These men and women are moving beyond midlife careers yet refusing to phase out or fade away.

As they search for a calling in the second half of life and focus on what matters most, these individuals stand to transform the nature of work in America.

They also hold the potential to create a society that balances the joys and responsibilities of contribution across the generations,in other words, one that works better for all of us.
