Small steps, big impact

Last week I went to the store to get some file folders. When it was my turn at the counter, I grabbed my wallet…only to discover I had left it at home. So I told the cashier, “Please leave it.  I’ll have to come back for it later because I forgot my wallet. “ Then […]

feel balanced

A coach on work-life balance doesn’t feel balanced all the time

A couple of weeks ago I was meeting with a potential client about giving workshops on work-life balance in their organisation. At one point during the meeting the training advisor of this organisation asked me: Do you feel balanced all the time? My honest answer was: no. It is not like once you know how […]

Mildness & kindness help you when you long for change!

Knowing what you need to do to find balance does not mean  you will feel balanced all the time. The circumstances of your life might change. Or maybe when you have felt balanced for quite some time, you give your balance less attention. Or the push and pull of all the demands in your life […]

tired or stressed

What you do when you are tired or stressed is often the opposite of what you need

Do you know what you do when you are tired or stressed? What is your automatic behaviour? Do you know what the tell-tale signs are in your behaviour? What behaviours serve as a red flag? Often these behaviours are automatic and we are not consciously aware of them.  When you are tired or stressed do […]

Maybe I should just get a simpler job to find balance

Sarah is a very talented and driven academic and is also recognized as such by her peers and her supervisors. She publishes well, is innovative, shows management skills and also grabs her chances to be a visiting scholar abroad.

willpower

Are you working on willpower instead of joy?

I have very strong willpower. Something needs to be done…even though you’re tired or don’t like doing it? I used to tell myself “come on, no whining, just do it. Not everything is fun and you can rest after you are finished.” This is how I used my willpower for a big part of my […]

Voordat je doelen stelt….doe dit eerst!

Zo richting het eind van het jaar zijn veel mensen bezig met hun doelen voor het komende jaar. Misschien moet je op je werk je POP (persoonlijk ontwikkel plan) voor 2019 schrijven of misschien wil je zelf bepaalde doelen voor het komende jaar stellen. Misschien ben jij iemand die jaarlijks goede voornemens maakt. Doelen stellen […]

dream

Do you dream with the brakes on?

Last month I gave two workshops at a PhD/postdoc career event at Leiden University. Most of the participants said they had no idea what they wanted to do next. But when I probed a bit further, I learned that a lot of the participants secretly had an idea or dream about a field of work, […]

Do you know when it is time to slow down and take good care of yourself because you are really tired? Do you know when it is time to get going, even when you feel tired? Do you know the difference? In this blog I share how I know and what you can do to […]

rustig aan

Zomercoaching

Deze zomer intensief aan de slag met al langer knagende keuze vraagstukken of juist een heel erg prangende vraag met betrekking tot jouw loopbaan of balans werk-privé? Voel jij al langer dat je onvoldoende energie of lol uit je werk haalt? Wil je heel graag een verschil maken met of in je werk, maar heb […]

zomerperiode

Laat de zomerperiode niet voorbij kabbelen!

Volgende week beginnen in het zuiden van het land de schoolvakanties alweer. De start van de zomerperiode waarin het in veel organisaties rustiger is. Veel collega’s zijn op vakantie, er zijn minder vergaderingen, projecten lijken tijdelijk bijna stil te liggen, klanten zijn op vakantie, het onderwijs ligt stil, etc. Wat doe jij op je werk […]
