CFS LifeWork Programme
(Work-Life Transition)


Many of us today are fitter and healthier in our 50’s and 60’s than our parents were. Medical advances and our good healthcare system have allowed us to live longer into our 80’s and 90’s and lead more fulfilling lives. With the longer life expectancy and rising cost of living, we have to ask ourselves: what are we going to do and whether we will have enough money to live on when we finally stop working altogether.

As we grow older, we will face many disruptions in our lives, such as new technology impacting our career and life or even changes in relationships. Managing them will become one of the most important task. Successful transition will depend on whether we can adapt to new ways of doing, thinking and operating – unlearn old ways of doing things and learn new ones.

CFS LIFEWORK helps you to manage your life transition, addressing issues concerning career, retirement, health and family so that you could live a more purposeful and meaningful life.

Course Objectives

CFS LifeWork is specially developed to help mature workers and seniors plan and manage their work life transition, addressing concerns of career, retirement, health and family at different stages of life, especially at critical age junctions of 55, 62 and 67 years.

Through a series of five workshops covering 6 modules over 3 days, participants go through a journey of self-discovery, finding their life goals, strengths and weaknesses and how to have positive mind-set on work and life. This unique programme helps participants overcome fear of uncertainty and navigate challenges in life with confidence by learning the ‘how-to’ using toolkits as well as other available resources. And doing this in a vacuum can be tough…. They can seek guidance from a CFS Life Coach.
