Coaching (English)

Career and burnout coaching in Eindhoven

How would your life look like, when you would do what you like most, using your capabilities and strengths? Wouldn’t you like to be in charge of your own life and career?
As a coach I will guide and support you towards a life full of energy and fulfilment. I can help you in finding your dream job, with personal development or leadership themes, or with the recovery of a (near) burnout.
If you have any questions or like to see if coaching could also help you further, feel free to contact me.

Topics and questions I might help you with

– Your current job does not make you happy. Which job will suit you better?
– What should be the next step in your career?
– How can you improve your work-life balance?
– You (almost) completed your PhD. What to do? Industry, academia, or even something else…?
– You suffer from a (near) burnout. How to recover and regain strength and energy?
– How to better handle the stress (at work or in general)?
– What do you need to do to transform from a specialist into a generalist?
– How to become more visible at work and show more leadership?

For whom?

My clients often have a bachelor, masters or PhD degree. They are for example active as designer, researcher, project leader, policy advisor or manager and work within high-tech, R&D, ICT, (semi-)governmental organisations, academia or are self-employed. Testimonials of former clients can be found here.

Career coaching

As career coach I guide you in a professional way in your personal development, and growth in your career path. Although every person is different, questions often fit in these categories:
• What personal growth is needed to get the most out of my current job?
• I know I want to move on, and get a new position. However, what do I really like and how do I get there?
• I don’t know what I like to do for work. What job or career path fits my personality and strengths?

Burnout coaching

When you suffer from a (near) burnout, I can help you to get in charge of your life again, step by step. Topics:
– Acceptance of the situation
– Regain energy
– Reflection on the process of getting burnt out. What was your share in it, what was your organisation’s share?
– Working on the things you can influence yourself
– Dealing with emotions and recognizing physical warning signals
– Getting back to work

In addition, I help people to better handle stress and take care of their energy balance.

Way of working

Your questions and goals will always be the starting point of our meetings. I often work via two parallel paths. Deepening your self-insight and facilitating personal growth on one hand, and learning new skills for strengthening your personal efficacy on the other.

I use techniques and methods from coaching, management as well as leadership theories.

We will meet face to face or via Skype.

Career coaching intensive

The Career coaching intensive is designed for people who prefer to work on their career questions through longer meetings and in a shorter time span. During four meetings we will work on a complete career trajectory, via the following themes: Who are you, what are your capabilities, what do you want to do, how to get there.
You will get a thorough view on your mission in life, your qualities, dreams and jobs that fit in this picture. Homework assignments are part of the Career coaching intensive package.

A meeting will take 2.5 hours and tea, coffee, water and a small snack are included. The four meetings take place within a period of three months.

In addition, you will get two follow-up sessions of 30 minutes by phone. You can discuss vacancies with me, sharpen your pitch, or prepare for an interview. I will prepare these sessions based on the information you will send me beforehand. These sessions will be planned within two months after our last meeting. Payment in advance.

You are looking for a new job, but how to optimally present yourself? Or you struggle to decide between two directions… These type of questions can be discussed in the Career check.

In addition, you will get two follow-up sessions of 30 minutes by phone. The first one is for a CV or LinkedIn profile check. The second one is to discuss a letter of application or to prepare for an interview. Payment in advance.

“Sagitta has a unique style of coaching with particular emphasis on understanding the underlying thought process behind our accepted behavioral patterns and trying to bring a change at that level, so as to have a more lasting influence. She acted as mirror to my personality, making me realize my pitfalls and strengths. Such an approach coupled with her excellent training techniques have helped me enormously to have an impact in my work environment. It was a pleasure to work with Sagitta and thank you for your insights!”

researcher at a university, male, 30 years old

“I chose Sagitta as my job coach because online aptitude tests didn’t help me. I found Sagitta to be very effective and flexible in her approach to the client. Everybody is different, has a different lifestyle and needs but Sagitta just gets you! She is a pro! She genuinely cares about well-being of her clients and went beyond the measure to help me reach my goal. It’s a hard work but it’s worth it.
Sagitta’s office is cosy and welcoming. You don’t feel like walking into another corporate-like place. It is a perfect environment to get inspired and make progress.
I highly recommend Sagitta as a job coach.”

Triggered by a burnout, I decided to check out from this path characterized more and more by organizing processes.

To bring my strengths, previous experience and even more important my mission in life together, I created my own dream job. Today I am active as a career and burnout coach for highly educated professionals.

I believe that everyone deserves a job which makes truly happy. Working from the inside out is my method to help you to define and achieve yours.
