Kathy Aronson
21:44
Hang in there, Chip. I can only imagine how hard it is to have so many of your internees were laid off.
Linda Beitz
22:37
Toes all good here in Chicago! Lovely 1st introduction to Happy Hour!
Pam S
22:47
Interesting David that you had Covid toes. It is mostly found in children so perhaps it speaks to your age and stage..hahaha
Wendy Garfield
22:56
This is a common symptom
Dana Hilmer
23:01
I’m happy to see you’re well now David and able to laugh about it!
Matthew Jernigan
23:14

karahugglestone

Laura Rubin - The Midlife Navigator
28:11
Totally agree with you Barbara. Age never bothered me.
Linda Beitz -Chicago USA
29:27
Kegan and Lahey?
rileymcdonough
30:04
Think that’s way beyond what she’s talking about!
Linda Beitz -Chicago USA
30:23
#riley…thanks!
Phyllis Weiss Haserot’s iPhone
30:42
love made up words. I coined “collaborageism” and GENgagement.
karahugglestone
30:46
Midlife is really an exciting time…it’s almost like a natural reset to expand on, and find new, exciting passions.
Nadine
30:51
Same
karahugglestone
34:14
What trends are you seeing now for Middlescencents, Barbara? How has the advent of Covid impacted them?
Nadine
35:52
She is amazing
Modern Elder
36:28
thank you Nadine...we love her too!
karahugglestone
37:17
I agree, Baraba - no defensive names. It’s positive, there is an elegance to it - yes - David!
Nadine
37:46
sooooo ture
Shayna W
38:12
So grateful for this new way of looking at the next half of my life ! It is changing so much for me ;-)
Nadine
38:16
ohhh
Chris Hiller

Mortality makes life richer
Linda Beitz -Chicago USA
38:43
Maybe its not about giving a shit?

Sandy Bhat
39:17
Barbara, Hi ..great to meet you. I was born & grew up in India, but lived here in US for 30 years now. As far as I can remember, there was no ageism I witnessed growing up in India. Can you please share some perspectives from your trip to India and if you think ageism is a cultural thing in western world.
Nadine
40:42
Here we go. God Bless Barb
karahugglestone
41:07
David, I see an opportunity in your how to dress question…in the meantime I can introduce you to a stylist friend.
Pam S
41:09
Each age and stage seems to have its accepted role(s) but it seems murkier for middlescents - why is that?
Nadine
41:46
ohhhhfff
Cindie Adams
43:13
I agree.
Nadine
43:34
I feel it. I have power and my wish is to share it
holleymorse
44:19
its about knowledge, confidence and wisdom!!
dianaplace
44:51
Would love Barbara’s perspective: even before the pandemic, those of us in this life stage were “reinventing” — now seems that in the new emerging reality, those of us in our 50’s and beyond will be called to share our wisdom in ways we we’re before… as “wisdom” becomes more valued and needed….so seems like there will be more and more possibilities for our lives…
Diane Flynn
44:56
An interesting read about COVID and its impact on the older workers. Also some great tips on landing a job if you’re a modern elder: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/why-covid-19s-impact-on-the-job-market-is-far-worse-for-older-workers-2020-05-05?reflink=mw_share_twitter
Cindie Adams
45:14
Many women in Middlescence don’t have parenting responsibility for the first time in years, and we are ready to go!
Nadine
45:43
Agreed. This not about gender. It's about Souls
katie.tremper@gmail.com
45:53
that will be a while for women to overtake men in the board room
Helen Jenkins
45:58
agree with Holly - confidence is the key: women gain it as they grow, men lose it when they shed their corporate armour.
iPhone
46:30
Thank You
Laura Zoll
46:34
Women may have power, but what about money? We make less, we have accrued less, we have lower investments. Poverty is female. Can you address this?
billg
46:36
We tend to think in a context of win or lose. Having power or not…I’d suggest that success will be found in sharing and working together. 1+1+ more than 2…
Pam S
48:10
So “mid life pivot” might be a better way to think of it! Seems more positive
Chad Elbert
48:21
I like to think of it as a mid-life "awakening".
Linda Beitz -Chicago USA
48:42
What’s the perspective from different demographics?
Nadine
49:28
That is a fact I can attest to. Im 56
Ken Pasternak
49:48
Midlife crisis was real for me, but it was definitely more of an unraveling for me than it was the stereotypical frivolous activities.
Sarah E. Endline
50:22
I love the mid-life edit ideaI think COVID is driving people to do this NOW
Linda Beitz -Chicago USA
50:45
Actually, I’m 67 - and it wasn’t until recently with the Covid shut down - that I experienced more of a crisis
Annie Auburn
50:46
There is looking forward to the future with maturing or there is chasing their youth.
Noelle Bortfeld
50:53
I love "edit". Reckoning forces the edit.
Lisa Horowitz
50:53
The editing can happen more than once.
karahugglestone
51:03
Agree, the challenge now is about editing. Beautifully said, Chip.
Nadine
51:24
oofff
Nadine
51:40
lol
Ellen Gold
52:56
Barbara, can you tell us more about this “pivot” and leaving old ideas-people, places, and things behind?
Laura Rubin - The Midlife Navigator
53:52
What is the legacy you would like to leave?
Wendy Garfield
54:26
Is there a reduction in stress levels as we get older. Our experiences familiarize us with enough exposure to not panic anymore.
Pat Whitty
54:35
How would you help people over 60 find purpose?
Lisa Horowitz
55:25
listen
toni bau
55:29
How do I help someone over 85 FEEL purpose?
Ellen Khalifa
55:31
So how do we leverage this new power - unrecognized by wider society, who sticks to the 20th Century idea of aging - to make a place in the world for that works with how we feel about ourselves?
Cindie Adams
55:35
Barbara, have you seen people in Middlescence that are spending their time learning, meeting new people, traveling (not like a tourist), more like a cultural anthropologist? I feel alone with this desire. Not start a business. Not take on responsibility.
rileymcdonough
56:08
Great question Ellen!!!
Annie Auburn
56:33
Getting comfortable with "I don't Know" as a way of revealing stress
Linda Beitz -Chicago USA
56:52
Fabulous work, Barbara!
Nadine
57:17
whoa
liz gebhardt
57:37
+1 to Ellen Ks question
karahugglestone
58:15
Should there be accepted roles for the stage in life? We can be blazing trail with our knowledge and ability…
s
58:24
as always very interesting session - thank you- Barbara knows a lot and she is a very good speaker
Linda Beitz -Chicago USA
58:39
Wisdom at Work has given me a new vision!
Cindie Adams
59:02
There definitely are expectations. It’s learning to not live others’ expectations.
rileymcdonough
59:33
The reality is that millions of incredibly talented people over the age of 55 will find themselves out of work, how do we change perception to open the door for new opportunities?
Nadine
01:00:27
I can attest to that!
bmw1
01:00:39
Why is gender more valued than quality and ability? Isn’t this just another form of descrimination?
Helen Jenkins
01:00:46
many of us feel great, healthy, vital and wanting to contribute and give back and share ideas - but how do we convince the younger sections of society - employers and others - that we are not invisiblewe still have a valuable role to play?
Helen Jenkins
01:01:05
or “ on the way out”?
Nadine
01:01:53
true that!!
iPhone
01:02:19
great questions
Nadine
01:02:49
yessss
Pam S
01:02:54
Perhaps a philosophy could be to : Live forward during this stage with your energy, your wisdom, experience, your soul, your expectations of self, (not others) to help shift no longer relevant cultural ideas of middlescence.
rileymcdonough
01:02:54
Mentor meaning “tell me what to do” or help me grow based on your experience that I can benefit from?
Linda Beitz -Chicago USA
01:03:11
Ditto! my kids are my best coaches!
Cindie Adams
01:03:25
I love my Millennial mentees. I learn so much from them.
Nadine
01:04:02
yes that's the good stuff
rileymcdonough
01:04:43
Ageless workforce, good luck with that!
sandy
01:04:44
empower each other - in our families and friends create community
Lola Rain
01:04:48
I’d like to be a mentor.
Lisa Horowitz
01:05:30
what about ageism by employers—there is clearly bias against hiring middlescents.
Noelle Bortfeld
01:06:13
Intergenerational potluck! Love this.
Linda Beitz -Chicago USA
01:06:36
Appreciating variability!
Dana Anton
01:07:23
Love hearing about longevity pledge .. bec career marketplace for us over 50 shrinks considerably & workplace ageism is a real problem!
Pam S
01:07:49
Sounds like we all need to be ‘age activists” in and elegant way, to raise the consciousness about relevance of middlescence.
Lisa Horowitz
01:08:17
How do you address implicit biases and organizational structural issues that work against older employers regardless of the individual mindset.
Cindie Adams
01:09:47
I was supposed to attend MEA with Barbara at the end of March. I’m so disappointed that it had to be canceled. She’s amazing!
Elyse Weinstein
01:11:02
society is in the doldrums with Covid. So helpful to hear your framework , it really resonates.
Carolyn Cole
01:11:16
Any predictions on how fast and any patterns of advancement that inclusion in the workplace regarding hiring modern wisdom elders?
Nadine
01:11:29
Luv Barbara
Pam S
01:11:32
This is interesting, covid 19 has made the process of pivoting a bit harder, but has opened many moments to reflect too
