“I have learned to accept myself as I am and have now adjusted my career accordingly.”

The organization I worked for was subject to change and I was no longer in the right place. After working there for 12.5 years, together with my employer, I decided to stop working and I became a candidate for outplacement. I found the Dynamisch Bureau website through Google and what I read appealed to me. The personal and pleasant approach was confirmed in the introduction meeting.

The first period was tough. Fortunately, my coach guided me well in this. My experience is that you really have to go through the stage of grief, otherwise you cannot look to the future with a fresh perspective.

During the process I got a better view of my talents through talent cards and the extensive report of my talents and drives. The support in redesigning my resume and writing an objective has also helped me enormously. Thanks to all the insights and my personal development during the process, I took the step to start as a freelancer. After that I was also well guided in writing my business plan and creating my website.

The thing that helped me the most in the whole process is that I learned to accept myself as I am. I have adjusted my career to this. My advice to others? Find a good coach, who works on the basis of trust, openness, honesty and who stimulates and challenges you. It will make you stronger. Dynamisch Bureau has many coaches who can help you with this.
