“Retirement Options Certified Coaches provide valuable insights to individuals, helping them plan for a successful transition to retirement,” commented Sharon Imperiale, Chairperson of the Board of Career Partners International, the parent of Retirement Options. “The LifeOptions Profile™ and Retirement Success Profile™ make this daunting life change much easier to navigate for individuals approaching retirement.”

Coaches certified through Retirement Options utilize the Retirement Success Profile and the LifeOptions  Profile assessment tools to help their clients identify the non-financial aspects of life key to their success in retirement. Retirement Options Certified Coaches have assisted thousands of individuals, couples, and employees of corporate clients to assess their readiness for this transition. They are experts on the subject of retirement and are regularly consulted on how to effectively navigate this major life change.
