“he deepest vocational question is not “What ought I to do with my life?” It is the more elemental and demanding ‘Who am I? What is my nature?’” -Parker J. Palmer
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” is a query put to us by parents, teachers, and friends. In our teen years we are content to keep our plans vague. In college the pressure builds-we want to choose a major related to our future career.
Then we graduate. Society says we have now entered the world of work and should be diving into our chosen profession. But even then, many of us aren’t sure what profession that’s supposed to be.
Not something mundane, something like what our dads did-long hours stuck in a cubicle. After all, a third of our lives will be spent working; We want a job that doesn’t actually feel like a job. Something that uses our talents and brings us great satisfaction.
What we really want isn’t a job at all; we want a vocation, a calling.
Over the last years, we have coached more than 50 clients in living a life that is both vocationally and financially rewarding. Our career consulting is two-fold:
1/ Bring you closer to your vocation
2/ Help you secure the job that aligns with this vocation
The seeds of your true self are born within you, with a unique purpose and special talents you can give to the world and to others.
Often, as we grow up, this true self gets buried by the influence and expectations of family, friends, teachers, and the media. We get sorted and labeled and placed into slots. Instead of listening to the call within us, we make decisions based on a need for approval, prestige, and security.
Embracing your calling means shutting off the voices of what others say you ought to do and living true to your real self.

Our services are designed to make you reach your goals in the most efficient, short-cut, powerful ways. Vocationally proprietary methodologies and other material are “easy to retain”-structured, yet “out of the comfort zone”-challenging for maximum effect.
We provide scientifically proven quick hacks to rewire your brain. Our assessment material and questionnaires follow our integrated approach presented above. They are based on most recent research and are stripped down to the most impactful questions.
A unique, tailor-made approach
It’s about you! We tailor our coaching sessions to match your needs, answer your specific questions, and truly get to know you.

Let us guide you by asking facilitating questions and providing basic tools – then think up solutions yourself, allowing you to develop your own vision, create new behaviour patterns, and build your vocation.
