Leading Self

Awareness for professionals.

Whether you’re at the beginning of your career or more established—as a professional, you have many options. There are opportunities, as well as plenty of questions. Who am I? What do I want and what don’t I want? What’s the next step? You can keep mulling over these questions, or you can decide to take action. We’ll help you get on the right track.


  • You will truly get to know yourself. This will help you to deal more effectively with yourself and the world.
  • You will discover what you want. Now and in the future—you choose your path.
  • You will get some powerful tools, that will help you be an impactful leader in your own life.


Leading Self consists of an intake, a kickoff, two modules and a closing day. You will also be doing peer consultation and development projects, plus you’ll have a buddy to discuss things with. The full program, from intake to closing day, takes 5 months.


Before we really start the program, we invite you to answer a number of questions online. These questions are about your learning goals and motivation to participate in Leading self. Then we discuss your answers in an online conversation and we get to know each other.

Module 1

What do I really want?

You get to know the other participants. You get to work with your dreams, ideals and goals. Your personal story is central. We help you see that sometimes you want something because others want it. Or vice versa. You discover what is really important to you and why. With the help of your buddy, intervision group and the trainers you get to the core. You walk out with a clear action plan. It’s your compass for the rest of the program.


Individual coaching


During module 1 you gained different insights. With individual coaching (45 minutes) you take a closer look at your goals and focus them (more) on the basis of these insights.

Module 2

Me and the other

You are connected to yourself and now also learn how to get someone else along from connection. So how do you make sure you get what you really want, while also giving others what they want.

Module 3

How do I stay in control?

Are you aware of your blockages that can sabotage the way to your goal? In which situations do you fall into your pitfalls and how do you climb out of them? You get tools on how to stay in the driver’s seat about what you want in life. After this module, your toolbox is filled and you can maintain control more easily.


Peer consultation

An important part of the programme is the mutual intervision. During Module 1 we put together intervision groups and you will be introduced to a number of intervision techniques. As an intervision group, you independently organize meetings that take place between the modules. During the intervision you discuss and anchor the insights you have gained.
