Midlife is defined as middle age. That’s it? That’s all it is? jeff noel suggests it’s the seminal moment to reThink, rePrioritize and reCommit. As Baby Boomers, we get one, real, honest-to-goodness second chance at life. Midlife is that chance.
Please don’t get jeff noel wrong, Baby Boomer careers are indispensable. In fact, what makes middle-aged leaders uncommonly valuable is that they’ve had brilliant training in their careers. Plus, mid-life leaders have a yearning to give back in a way their 9-5 status quo didn’t facilitate.
This is not a negative reflection of corporate America. More like a mammoth opportunity for older leaders, particularly Baby Boomers, to do something great before they die.
