Rick Steiner, Ph.D. is a recognized university leader, organizational and management expert, consultant, and author. He has worked with US and foreign governments, foundations, and corporations to make communities and nations better custodians of their peoples’ futures. A recovering workaholic, Dr. Rick is now retired and keeping himself happily occupied by working as a professional ski instructor, writing, consulting, sailing, riding his bicycle, and always seeking his next adventure; and, most of all, enjoying the ride wherever it takes him. He expected retirement to just happen. Turn the work switch off and the retirement switch on! It doesn’t quite work like that, as he learned. Your job was who you were and what you did, how you defined yourselves. Transitioning from work to retirement can be challenging and emotionally destabilizing as we adjust to this unfamiliar lifestyle.
