Career Coaching

Is what you find important in life consistent with the environment in which you function? Do you still feel comfortable with what you are doing? Does your work energize you? Do your talents and qualities stand out sufficiently? If the answer is no, or if you are in doubt, then it is time to make a move. To reflect, to take control, to look ahead and to take the steps that will take you where you want to be. It is time for career coaching.

With career coaching at Van Ede & Partners you take matters into your own hands again. Under the guidance of a permanent coach, you go through a program which follows a clear structure, tailored to your career issue(s). You rediscover what really drives you, what your values and desires are, what you have to offer. And what kind of working environment might be suitable for that. You will gain a new, fresh look at your talents, qualities and ambitions and your employability. These insights into what you can do and what you want helps you to progress. It gives you the drive to continue your work with renewed energy – under your rules. Alternatively, it brings the freedom in your mind to take well-considered new career paths, from the foundation of a clear self-image and a realistic view of your options.

Does your employer wonder from time to time if you are still in the right  role ? Do you sometimes feel that your professional talents and qualities are not fully utilized? Are you after years of hard work in a management position ready for a moment of reflection? Do you increasingly start to wonder: what I am doing, I am doing well, but am I still doing the things I should be doing? Our career counseling program offers the solution!

Career counseling at Van Ede & Partners puts you back in charge of your career. Our personalized programs ensure that you are able to rediscover what truly motivates you and in which type of work environment you would thrive. Throughout career counseling you will be working with a permanent coach. However, there is always the opportunity to speak with other coaches and specialists as well. Thanks to this you will get a fresh look at your talents, qualities and ambitions and your employability. Experience shows that the freedom and energy this gives you, generates results. You will pick up your existing work with renewed energy and ambition. Or you deliberately choose for new career paths elsewhere - from a position of clear self-perception and a realistic view of your options.

We also offer various components that zoom in on a specific career issue, as separate programs.

Personal Profile

Would you like to gain a better understanding of your own talents, qualities, ambitions and employability? This is possible through our Personal Profile program. Through introspection you get to map out your strengths, weaknesses and your (sometimes underutilized) opportunities. This results in a clear picture of your value proposition to the labor market.

Career choices

This is a follow-up to the program “Personal Profile.” Based on your value proposition to the labor market we explore viable career options in partnership with you: what kind of work environment and what kind of tasks make your heart sing? A part of this is gaining relevant contacts in the labor market. How do you build a professional network? How do you utilize this effectively? We help you clear the hurdles and offer you the pointers required to make your network work for you. A big additional advantage here is that you get access to Van Ede & Partners extensive network.

Personal Balance

Are you “done” with your current job? Are you not getting the same inspiration and energy as you were initially? Do you feel as if you are stuck, that you must change something, but you are not sure what it is? Personal Balance® offers a clear view on yourself and your career opportunities.

During this program you research together with your coach where you stand in your personal and professional development. Which choices can you make? What do you really want? What do you need in order to flourish, in your current job or outside of it? What can you personally contribute? And how can you ensure that over the course of your career, work and personal life are balanced? Personal Balance® gives you concrete tools to increase your employability and to get more pleasure and satisfaction from your work.

Career Check

Do you want to find out within a limited number of sessions what your employability is? And how you can utilize your knowledge, experience, talents and drivers in the market? What type of work environment suits you and where there is a demand for your unique offer? A Career Check helps you define in a few sessions what your most important qualities are and where your added value lies and gives you clear insights in your employability. This way you will increase your chances of finding work in the right environment and doing work that suits you in the long run.
