  • Pop up Coaching session July

    The benefits of coaching

    Coaching helps you establish realistic goals, discover solutions to challenges you may be up against, develop action plans and build your motivation and confidence.

    Whilst coaching is more of a process than a one-time action through our Pop- Up coaching sessions allow you to get a taste of the power of coaching and how effective it can be.

    You take charge of your life and career by changing it from what it is today to something you’ve always dreamed of, being the ultimate goal.

    How does the Pop- Up coaching session work?

    • You will have a one to one coaching session with one of our qualified coaches
    • Each session runs a duration of 45 minutes
    • To make the most of your session come prepared with a specific issue you need help with or a challenge you are facing at the moment that you need help navigating through

  • Get Focused: Your One Page CV!

    - Post Oost

    There have been many calls for a workshop on CV writing and in this month’s Empower Amsterdam workshop Jane Stephenson will share her expertise in a fun way to kick off this topic.

    • Your CV is your calling card to a new job: it’s the first information about yourself you offer to a prospective employer.
    • If writing one feels like a mammoth task, a task that demands blood, sweat, and tears or if your CV never seems to get a response from recruiters, come to this workshop and discover a new way to present yourself.
    • We will take a fresh look at how you can display your skills and experience and achievements and make them shine!
    • We are keeping this interactive workshop small, with a maximum 10 participants, so that each participant has a chance to get feedback on their new CV layout.
  • Connect with Your Jiminy Cricket!

    - Post Oost

    Villia de Koningh presents this workshop:
    Connect with your Jiminy Cricket!

    Living in alignment with your core values you will naturally be consistent with your authentic self. When your life is in alignment with your values, deep satisfaction expands within you.

    Discover your core values. Know them, learn from them, embrace the ones that serve you, move away from the ones that do not serve.

    They will show you why you behave and act in certain ways.

    They will have you manage conflict and see other people more clearly. They will shine the light on what really matters to you. They will explain to you why you feel what you feel.

    They are a system in perfect working order: they’re the central HQ of how you choose and what you decide, how you behave & how you act. core values underpin how you live your life.

    They assist you to answer, ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What do I stand for?’

    During this workshop, we will discover what are our 3 core values and then create a core values creed for your life. Your creed will reflect who you are and what’s important to you.

    Let your creed become your benchmark, your standard of the best you. Using it will help align your behavior with your core values. Measure yourself against it and continuously ask yourself if your current activity is moving toward your vision of your best life.

    This workshop is free, but please book your place using the Eventbrite platform as space is limited: follow the link to reserve your spot.
