Before You Make a Halftime Transition: 5 Practical Steps to Detox

You know you need a change. But how? And where to start? You’re so used to running on adrenaline. Under the surface, you feel like you just want to escape. You want peace. You want rest.

It could cost too much with the people I’m leading.” I had just wrapped up a coaching session with a client talking about the frenzied pace of his life, the burden of responsibilities, and how he felt trapped, like everyone wanted something from him.

Tragedy to Transformation: Interview with John Ramstead, HT Alum

John Ramstead’s first half experiences were diverse and adventurous, but nothing compared to what he encountered in mid-life. Imagine this: John started out in the United States Navy where he served as a fighter pilot. Then he transitioned to an entrepreneur and then to leading a Fortune 500 management team. Then life threw him an enormous curve ball - a tragic accident that no one thought he would come back from. After 23 surgeries, he not only survived, but he now lives a very full life and

Your Spouse’s Dreams May Be A Key to Your Halftime Calling

[Written by Lloyd Reeb, Halftime Founding Partner & Coach]  I am a hard-driving, goal-oriented person. But I hit a point in the mid-1990s where closing the next deal and cutting another ribbon just didn’t have the same appeal. And I began to ask, “Is there more to life than this?” and “What’s next for me?” I knew I needed a halftime – a time to refocus and make a game plan for the second half of life. Fast forward to today, and surprisingly enough, my second half has
