We recognise that the retirement landscape has changed, with radical reforms to workplace and state pensions, plus increasing life expectancy.
Retirement is a word that has many connotations. It is something that we look forward to for a very long time, but when it comes the decisions about when, and what to do next can be difficult. It is normal for employees to feel anxious about taking this step as it will potentially have a major impact on their life.
Employees planning for this change in lifestyle have much to consider. Our programme helps them to make informed decisions by looking in depth at what is likely to change and how that change will impact on them.
Our Lifestyle Choices programme gives time for self-assessment and reflection. Our aim is to open this new world to exploration and throw in some ideas and helpful direction along the way.
We help to address clients’ concerns, by taking a practical look at the pros and cons. We take clients through a structured process so that they feel more informed and confident about making the right choice.
Supporting your key people through this stage can have tangible benefits for your business. It can help with your succession planning, the engagement and retention of emerging leaders and in ensuring that there are no unplanned, erratic transition processes. This in turn reduces the risk of wider disengagement which, if not tackled swiftly, can lead to a more general downturn in morale and productivity.

“My CDS coach has helped me understand many issues that were affecting my work and personal life to the point now where I am much happier and delivering results I didn’t think were possible. She is practical and resourceful as well as caring and inspiring and I would, without hesitation, recommend her to help anyone who was looking for coach.”Senior Programme Manager – Energy Sector
“My CDS coach provided me with the opportunity to bounce ideas around, acting as an off-the-wall sparring partner to generate ideas which led to “eureka moments” post the session. I valued the confidential, independent, non-judgemental nature of the conversations.”Head of Technology – Finance Sector
“I enjoyed the whole coaching journey. From the initial meeting where I was asked to articulate where I thought I was in terms of my current working environment and the challenges I was facing – with too many plates spinning, right through to my current role and work life balance. The opportunity to share my experiences in an open and safe environment without judgement was hugely beneficial.”Senior Leader – Finance Sector
