Who we are

Everybody – whether they are young or old – wants to live a meaningful life. You want to focus on things that really matter. You want to add value to the organization you work for, but also to society and your family and friends. You want a career that matters. A career that matches your extensive talents and your knowledge and experience. A career that brings joy and satisfaction. 

Careers that Matter

Am I doing what I should be doing?
In a career, anything can happen. Many things will be out of your control. The terms of political and administrative roles are often uncertain. The ideal manager might hit a ceiling once their company reaches its next level. The professional sometimes will be unable to answer to their ambitions within the confines of their current organization. These are important crossroads in one’s career. These are the moments when key questions arise. What am I doing, I am doing well? Also, am I still doing what I should be doing?

Personal growth and development
Van Ede & Partners guides people who are looking to get back in charge of their life and career (again). Whether it is career counseling, executive coaching or outplacement: we always focus on the person as a whole, and on personal development and growth. Anyone who knows themselves and knows what is really important, can take control of their life and career like no other. The greater this self-awareness, the more likely it is that you will utilize your talents, more targeted than ever before for a career that offers lasting enjoyment and satisfaction. This is how Careers that Matter are born!

Personal development always starts with an inward journey. It starts with the will and the ability to reflect on yourself. What drives you, what gives you energy? What gives meaning to your life and your work? What is your north star? These are fundamental, and at times even existential questions, but they are necessary. In the end, they always lead to consciously using your skills and capabilities, until you have found a (new) work environment that really fits.

True satisfaction, lasting results
A meaningful career does not only take place on a professional level. True satisfaction only arises when a client does things that are important to them in all areas of life and when all areas are in balance. If that is the case, the energy and ultimately a new work destination will simply follow, is what we have observed. Van Ede & Partners guides clients in this process of personal growth and professional development, with lasting results. You will receive a new perspective and renewed energy.
