Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.
~ Anthony J. D'Angelo
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
~John Quincy Adams
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
The main thing is to keep the main thing,
The main thing.
Module 1 – Grow your personal leadership
All you need in your career is passion, a compass to guide that passion and a plan that builds on your strengths to achieve your goals.
80% of the workforce is unhappy with their job, or feel that they are sitting in the passenger seat of their career. Often they got to where they are now because they were driven by random external events, a friend that chose a specific study, a vacancy that came available at the right time… or even a professor that offered a PhD scholarship. Most people dream of great things, “if I have a 1,000,000 euro then I will quit my job and I will …” Yet a minority will pursue their dreams, and odds of reaching that dream is slim at best. However starting your career with the job of your dreams will guarantee your future success. Selecting candidates on their likelihood of future success is exactly what a recruiter does. So what will you do in 10 years from now? What are your goals, passions, values and strengths? What are you doing today to reach it?
This course teaches you to produce superior results by improving your personal effectiveness and leadership at a personal, and interpersonal level. It leverages the insights from Stephen Covey, Tom Rath, Simon Sinek, Tony Robbins, and many other international recognized personal coaches and trainers. The focus is to help the participants start on a journey of discovering their strengths, passions, values via various tools, get clear on their personal mission statement, and leverage this as a compass to focus on their goals. It will also provide a simple system to manage their focus to realize their objectives. During the course, focus-groups will be formed for ongoing self-coaching, well beyond the 2 day training, supported with online discussion material and an online trainer availability.
The ideal target audience for this training are people early in their career, even as early as students, however it is never too late to start growing your personal leadership.
- Identify moments of personal choice
- Increase your personal effectiveness
- Identify your passions, values and your personal strengths
- Develop a personal mission and vision statement

Module 2 – Grow your future career
Shaping your future career starts with you. You’ll get selected for your future career based on the estimate of your likely success, which is based on your passions, your values and your strengths. When all that fits, it only depends on how you sell yourself, and everyone is a salesman. Whenever you interact with people, talk with them, teach them, influence them, anything you try to convince them to spend time or any other resource on you. Why do people spend time reading your email, how do you convince them to spend their time on you? Everyone is trying to sell, but most people are not clear what they are selling, or how. When you are applying for a job it is no different. Why are you choosing a specific employer, and why would they buy from you?
The objective of this training is to build the brand called You™, leveraging various tools, your strengths, values and passions to build a clear personal equity. Following the golden circle principle from Simon Sinek, it starts with why you do what you do, then how you do it and finally what you stand for. Because people don't buy what you do; they buy why you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe. This is what creates a very clear image of the brand You™. Then learn how and where to sell it, to grow your future career. Lastly, get insider information on how talent based recruitment works, how to prepare, do’s and don’ts for your resume and how to shine in your interview.
Ideally participants who followed module 1 first. The ideal target audience are job seekers or people early in their career, even as early as students. However it is never too late to start growing your personal leadership.
- Increase your personal effectiveness, by building the ‘brand called You™, from your strengths, values, and passions.
- Learn why, when, and how to sell the brand You™.
- Understand the purpose of the resume, the do's and the don’ts for a non-Academic resume.
- How to further grow your exposure by leveraging LinkedIn.
- Understand the different phases of talent recruitment, and how to best prepare yourself.
People don't buy what you do; they buy why you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe.
~ Simon Sinek
Coaching for Growth
Most people prefer to be coached via a non-directive coaching style, but are more comfortable leveraging the directive style. Furthermore, the difference between leading, managing, coaching, and mentoring is often unknown and it is unclear what the right approach is. Coaching is not merely a technique to be wheeled out and rigidly applied in certain prescribed circumstances. It is a way of managing, a way of treating people, a way of thinking, a way of being.
As a manager of others, you have two key tasks, delivering the results of the research/business group and growing your employees to become more effective in delivering the targeted results. Growing others can be done via various directive and non-directive management/coaching techniques. One of the most widely used coaching tools is the t-GROW (topic - Goal - Reality - Options – What) model. t-GROW is a simple and powerful framework for structuring and conducting coaching sessions that produce immediate results.
The target audience for this training are managers, leaders, and mentors who have coaching responsibilities. Ideally, participants have 2-3 years experience in managing responsibility, however it is never too late to start coaching for growth.
During the training, participants will...
- Explore and experience different coaching techniques
- Learn and practice the non-directive (t-GROW) approach to coaching.
- Gain insight in how to facilitate high performance in individuals and teams
- Realize your potential to become an outstanding leader and coach
- Learn how to significantly improve employee engagement and employee-manager relationships by promoting a non-directive coaching approach.

The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!
1:1 leadership coaching
I want to grow people, leaders, managers, teacher, influencers, parents beyond their goals, and inspire them to coach others to reach their goals. Because I want to help people Grow to Excel. I believe that coaching for growth is the way to bring people together and build the foundation of trust.
A 1:1 coaching relationship starts with a personal interview to assess what your personal needs and wants are, to understand what you want to achieve and more importantly why you want it. From there we can define the scope of the relationship, and develop a plan forward that meets your needs. We will agree upon the durations of coaching sessions that we will need to complete specific actions towards your goal.
In typical coaching sessions starts we work on understanding the goal, the will to achieve it, and define an action plan. Various resources can be applied pending your needs, resources like assessments, screenings, specific managerial tools and coaching models to grow your personal leadership.
The duration of the coaching relationship varies depending on needs and preferences.
