Training 1: Outside in – Working from your core
It is precisely participation in a group that gives you more insight into the effect of your behavior on others. You discover what drives you (in your ego and soul) and how you can make new choices in this regard. You learn how to work with your core and a healthy dose of ego. This highlights your uniqueness, passion and talents. Besides various exercises, you will be given insights and tips that you can use immediately in your personal and professional life.

Training 2: Inside out –   Optimum performance in your work environment
In this training course you discover how you can use your personal strengths to manage others effectively. Whether they are co-workers, clients or suppliers. You experience how your patterns of response, judgements and limits can help or hinder you and discover new options. You reinforce your awareness of your surroundings and harmonization with others, which gives your added value more spin-off.

Individual Coaching sessions
During two personal coaching sessions (each lasting 1.5 hours) there are opportunities to provide feedback on your learning goals, practical experiences and assignments. Insights are brought into sharper focus and practical tips are provided. There is also space for deepening and concrete actions. Work situations in the near future are also studied in detail, which enables you to apply what you have learned in practice.
