I am looking for help in motivating people at the end of their career. I expect others have supervised people who are near retirement but for a variety of reasons must continue to work.
The incentives of promotion and growth that are effective for people earlier in their career have less appeal to this group. In my case, the coaching challenge is motivation of a person with a great deal of historical and institutional knowledge. The knowledge base though is receding in its relevance almost before our eyes as our project changes.
How best to coach a staff person for productivity and growth who does not necessarily see themselves in a growth part of their career?
