9-Week Course on Crafting the Next Stage of Your Work & Life (closed)
April 19 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Reimagine, Re-Energize and Reinvent: Crafting the Next Stage of Your Work and Life
This course is closed to selected participants only.
The Office for Senior Faculty Transitions has partnered with Russ Eisenstat, PhD and Stephanie Eisenstat, MD to offer this online program for mid to late career faculty.
Mid to late career for highly motivated individuals can be a time of stress and transition, but also a chance to reflect, reimagine, re-energize–and even potentially reinvent– work and life. Recent research in the fields of life span development and positive psychology highlights that the old paradigm and mindset of gradual decline into the retirement years is no longer accurate or helpful. Having the opportunity to systematically explore these issues as part of a supportive community, away from the pressures of the day, can help people feel greater agency, be more intentional in their decision making, and ultimately more professionally and personally fulfilled.
This limited enrollment course is an opportunity for those in mid to late career who are seeking to successfully navigate a work/life transition. Using a disciplined, evidenced base approach, course participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their personal journey and understand better their distinctive strengths. This work will provide a foundation for reimaging the path forward and proactively shaping a more meaningful and rewarding next chapter. We will also provide a wealth of practical tools and resources to support participants in making tangible progress, week by week, in realizing their aspirations for their work and life.
As a physician educator, certified coach and practicing clinician now for almost 30 years, Dr. Stephanie Eisenstat has helped individuals and groups enhance their effectiveness and impact. She has helped others to use their voice, talents, and strengths to collaborate and create win-win solutions to complex problems and build consensus in complex contexts. Through the Center for Physician Well-Being, she currently coaches MGH faculty at all career stages on ways to achieve their aspirations in times of stress and transition. She collaborated with a MIT Sloan School of Management team to study and develop strategies for alleviating physician work burden while enhancing patient care.
Dr. Russ Eisenstat has spent the last four decades coaching and supporting leaders and organizations around the world in unlocking their full potential. After receiving his Ph.D. from Yale in clinical psychology, Russ served six years on the faculty of the Harvard Business School in the leadership and organizational behavior area. He also spent five years at McKinsey & Company as a Senior Organizational Fellow and expert in the areas of leadership, organizational design and change. More recently he served as the founding Executive Director of the Center for Higher Ambition Leadership. Russ is also a co-author of Higher Ambition, a book that shows how great leaders create superior long term social as well as economic value.
The program is taking place every other Tuesday from 4:30-6pm from February 8 to May 31, 2022.
