Why this Resource May Help You

“A few years ago Walter Wright visited me with a question: “How should I think about leadership transition, retirement and the third third of life?” . . . . With this guide, Walt invites you to enter our conversation, to check out your own experience, to design a third third that releases your potential, continues your opportunity to learn, to grow and contribute to the health of the world. I hope you find the questions provocative and the group process rewarding.”
