We connected with Jan and Jon who share with us a passion for better life and career transitions and published Changing Gear: Creating the Life You Want After a Full On Career earlier this year. We talk with the pair about their own career changes, why they wrote Changing Gear, the challenges of transitioning into the third stage of life, the psychological frameworks they use as coaches, and an eight-step transition process to help people find their new selves.
