Choose work where you use your true strenght
You're at the point in your career where you're doing work you're good at and you are being appreciated, but something's missing. You lack job satisfaction, energy or challenge. You realize that you want to take a different path, but you lack the tools to take steps, then it is time for reflection.
You desire work that gives you energy,
instead of work that costs energy
When your daily work consumes more energy than it gives you, this will take its toll. You become more
and more tired and cranky, and eventually it can make you sick and burned out.
For example, you have been able to get a lot of promotions in the past, therefore you have grown many steps further year after year. Often the promotion has been more important than how you actually felt about it. Because status has taken priority over job satisfaction.
What do you do, when after years of working, you suddenly realize that the work simply no longer suits you? When you're in such a job, it means you're playing a part of a person you don't want to be. That you're pursuing a goal that doesn't interest you. This indicates a lack of realism and even a lack of integrity. Because it is unfair to the employer, your manager and colleagues and especially unfair to yourself.
And then comes the time when you are 80 years old and you look back on your life. What most people regret at that age is that they would have liked to have made different choices: following their own plan, more time for the people and things that matter to them.
You want to break through.
"Suddenly you realize that you haven't used your potential in ages"
You want something different, but how?
You know you want change now, and this awareness is already going to set you apart from the rest to actually start living the life you want to lead. If you know who you are, in other words what your core values and motivations are, this offers many new perspectives.
Work that suits you does not cost you energy, but gives you energy. After all, if your work is an extension of who you are, then the results of your work are your personal gain. You experience renewal again and again without getting tired of it.
When you look in the mirror you realize what you have known for a long time: it is now time to change course. You are ready for the next phase, but a clear picture of the next step is lacking to make it concrete.
You may have already tried this:
Do you recognize this? These are all solutions that in theory can lead to action, but often remain with thoughts. And you know, just reading and thinking won't help you, you have to take action.
The time has come to take the first step to fulfill your dream. With career breakthrough coaching you create your personal step-by-step plan to create the work situation in which everything fits: your role, the company, the subject and the working environment.
"I only want to do things that I believe in that make me happy every day"
The career breakthrough method
The ultimate reward of a job is the satisfaction you find in what you do. The career breakthrough method of Klijn Creative Teaching gives you the tools to take action and achieve your desired goal. During her PhD research, Sandra Klijn developed a model that explains which factors influence personal energy at work. This model has been translated into a methodology to find and get your ideal job.
Just like you navigate in google maps, you also navigate to your ideal job. The first thing that needs to be clear is your current location, which means: Do you know yourself well enough to know which job is right for you? The second step is your destination, which means finding out exactly what work you want to do. Finally, there is the third step, as it follows in any navigation system, you make a plan for your route. This means that you make an action plan, with the steps you will go through and with support channels you need, to create the work situation that suits you.
What this will bring you
Doing what you really love, every day. On Sunday evening you look forward to the working week. On Monday mornings you are drawn to work. You feel like getting started because your work matches who you essentially are, what you are good at and what is really important to you. You have time for your loved ones and passions. You wake up with the feeling of satisfaction and meaning.
The method for success
The content of the career breakthrough trajectory is based on scientific articles and business literature. The model that Sandra Klijn developed during her PhD research into personal energy at work, serves as a backbone and has been converted into a concrete step-by-step plan.
The steps of the career breakthrough method are processed in different parts with videos, personality tests, feedback and you receive your own personal report of your steps. The components of the trajectory are:

During the coaching process with Sandra I got to know myself better.
The search for my motivations and finding out where the things that I have naturally been doing for years come from, have given me the insights to better organize my work. A good example is that I can now better manage the expectations of my colleagues and stakeholders. By clearly indicating which role I want to take on in which defined project, I can use job crafting to better align my work with what I can and what I want.
