Psychologist Dan Lobovits wasn’t seeking change. He had a satisfying career helping people and communities deal with the emotional impact of trauma. An accomplished marathoner, his Twitter profile describes him as “ loving my work wife, kids, dog, gardening, bread making, beachwalks, and of course, yoga”.
As his parents and their generation encountered the ageing process, his experience and sensitivity helped him re-envision aging as a life stage with its own unique stage of life, rather than as a trauma or a condition of illness. He utilized a unique set of personal resources-a sense of optimism steeped in his admiration for the survivors of trauma, and an entrepreneurial inclination that defines unmet needs as opportunities rather than problems. He shifted his professional practice to create a business called LifeSpan Health Services to develop products and services to promote health and well-being to help our aging population master the art of growing older while healthier, and with grace and wisdom.
And who could have imagined that this mid-career marathoner who has logged 40,000 miles of running would become a poster boy for the best practices of his new organization?
