You enjoy a full life. Your career is demanding, your personal life packed and your to do list never ending. As result, you may feel mentally/emotionally occupied and loose sight of the bigger picture. This means it’s high time for a personal retreat.
The two-day retreat with Ilja was an insightful experience for me. By applying different tools and listening carefully, Ilja helps to get fresh views on – sometimes complex – situations in my professional life. Together, we identified opportunities for the future, based on the (near) past and the present.

Personal Retreat is an experiential and rewarding process in four parts:
Day 1 (morning and afternoon)
Morning: Sorting the past
We begin by taking a big-picture look at the most recent past. How did events shape your personal life? Which successes and challenges occurred at work? By looking back, you may get closure, put things in perspective and identify the larger patterns at play. This gives you food for thought and creates room for new things.
Afternoon: Sensing the presence
Next, we take an honest and probing look at who you are at this point in your life. Who are you really? Which qualities or needs are (on the verge of) emerging? Where are you currently holding yourself back? Also, we identify the talents, knowledge and passions that you may loose touch with in the hustle and bustle of life. By reconnecting with your core strengths, your confidence and self-knowledge will be increased.
Day 2 (morning and afternoon)
Morning: Envisioning the future
Now it is time to look to the future and envision your journey ahead. What direction should you be heading? What are key obstacles and opportunities? Clarity around the shape of things to come will give you more focus and determination.
Afternoon: Ready for action
Finally, we translate all your experiences and insight into concrete goals and tangible actions. You will embark on this next phase with a clear plan of how to shape your career and life.
