My Career Growth Roadmap

- Het Coach Huis (map)

Are you feeling a bit stuck in your career and are you asking yourself “what do I do next in order to get further and higher”?

We all feel this way at times! Feeling stuck is a sign that it is time for you to do things differently. It is an inner call for action.

We have been where you are now - asking yourself all these questions: Is this all that’s possible for me professionally? What would it take for me to aim higher, ask for more and what does that “more” look like? And how do I get it?

Not only have we been there ourselves, but we have guided dozens of others through that journey in our 1 on 1 coaching practice and now we want to do it with you and a group of 9 other ambitious, dedicated and committed individuals.

Who is MY CAREER GROWTH ROADMAP for?

  • Have you been working for some years and have you reached the point where work has become boring and predictable?
  • Are you considering changing your career path, but feeling uncertain and a bit scared to do it?
  • Have you recently joined the workforce and are you still trying different things to find something that “feels right”?

If you have answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then this program is for You!

MY CAREER GROWTH ROADMAP is a 3-step group coaching program designed to help you:

Step 1: Get clarity what career success means to you, create a vision and a goal to reach it.

Step 2: Identify your strengths and areas of development relevant for achieving your goal; understand what your intrinsic motivators are so you can stay committed on your way forward.

Step 3: Build a detailed action plan from where you are now to where you want to be when you have achieved your goal.

Some of the big questions on our clients’ minds are: “But, how do I know what do?”, “Do I even deserve a promotion?”, “How can I be certain that this is really what I want?”, “How can I leave something secure to pursue a dream?”

Many clients come to us conflicted between what they think is “realistic” and what they really want and we help them turn their ideas and dreams into a realistic step-by-step professional path.

MY CAREER GROWTH ROADMAP group coaching program includes:

  • 1 individual intake coaching session with each participant. We will explain how group coaching works, discuss your needs and expectations, and how you can best benefit from participating in the program.
  • 3 group coaching sessions of 2 hours each. Each group coaching session has a theme and focuses on a specific stage of the process of you creating your career growth roadmap. The maximum number of participants is 10.
  • 1 follow-up individual coaching session with each participant. We will discuss your take-aways from the program and your progress with your action plan.
  • Assignments and materials for in-between the coaching sessions.
  • Fun and exciting exercises designed to open your mind, ignite your curiosity, explore your guiding principles, strengths, and motivators.
  • Working in small groups and benefiting from the experience, insights, and perspectives of all participants.

How to Succeed on Purpose

Get inspired to pursue your calling, to find a new career path, and to do your best work from an author/entrepreneur who has guided Hollywood creative artists, counseled Silicon Valley tech start-ups, and taught graduate students at Stanford.

Use the job market as a chance to experiment with the possibility. Learn to harness the magic of the universe and your own creativity to find your optimal job in the most efficient manner possible by tuning into the magnificent power of your intuition and the wisdom of your heart.

Sounds challenging, but it’s easy. And Truth Hawk will show you how.

About Truth Hawk

My own personal journey has been one of transformation and renewal. Despite the trappings of success and a high-profile career, I was compelled to explore deeper terrain, to uncover the very meaning of success and purpose. That exploration took me around the world and into the depths of my own being to come through to the other side with a synthesis of timeless wisdom practices and practical, universal teachings. A successful journey, which is what life is all about, is one marked equally by a quest within ourselves at the same time we are searching—for a job, for a new career, for meaning— outside of ourselves. Join me to learn simple, effective tools for doing both.

This is a paid workshop and all proceeds are for the benefit of Stichting Empower Amsterdam.

Webinar - Brand Your Career

- Online

An interactive webinar by Empower Amsterdam Founder and owner of The What If Project, Shea Harty.

Treat your career like it’s a business whether you work for an organization or you work for yourself.

Have you heard of personal branding and thought well that's not for me because I am not famous and I don't own a business? Well, personal branding helps to establish your position as an expert in your field or industry. Treating your career as a brand can have many benefits. Professionals who make it very clear the specific skills they bring, the specific audiences they serve, or the specific opportunities they’re seeking, tend to be more memorable. Personal branding allows you to differentiate yourself from other candidates. If you’re faced with a difficult career decision, being clear on your personal brand allows you to understand if the opportunity reinforces or dilutes your desired personal brand, which often clarifies the right path forward.

The great thing is that you already have a personal brand. Your personality and values are a large part of what makes up your brand. This workshop will help you to control your story or the aspects of your brand that you want managers and recruiters to recognize about you.

Join the webinar to learn how to shape and control your personal brand to become a thought leader, change careers, find a new employer, or even to help clients find you if you just started your own business.

During the webinar:

1) we’ll explore what makes up a personal brand, and

2) highlight 3 ways to exhibit your expertise to attract the job or clients you want to work with.

It doesn’t matter where you are in your career: happy or unhappy, right now is the moment to establish and tailor your story in your voice, with your words, in your style. Take control of the story you want others to say about you when you’re not in the room.

Come ready with a pen, laptop/tablet, an open mind, and a readiness to be more visible!

Tickets are €10, all proceeds go to Empower Amsterdam
