Here are three underlying causes that can make you feel stuck in your career:
In the Netherlands, 6 in 10 workers experience work-related stress regularly or very often. One in five young professionals between 25 and 35 years of age experience burnout or burnout-like symptoms. Not surprising, then, if you feel stressed!
Do you have a dormant feeling that you are not good enough the way you are? That you should be happier if only you were [better, brighter, healthier, more positive]? You’ve got it! Happyism!
Do you think it’s your own fault that you’re not happy? That others all are? You probably think the world is and so is your happiness!
Thankfully, we are here to offer you our help.
All ME coaches belong to a professional association to ensure high quality:
Examples of coach questions in an introductory meeting:
“Keeping my work-life balance healthy is a challenge. Yes, this is my first full-time job, and yes, I know I am a perfectionist. But there is such a high workload, and most people are so idealistic about why they chose a job with this employer. It’s very hard to set boundaries about when work stops and chill time starts.”
“Since returning home after the holidays, I feel very stressed and this has a negative effect on my relationship at home. I experience a sense of injustice, feel powerless and disillusioned. I want to improve my work-life balance, but I don’t know how. I tend to avoid conflicts with others. This comes at the expense of myself. I need to change that, but how do I start?”

Examples of coach questions in an introductory meeting:
“I have achieved a lot in my work thanks to my high ambitions. But I have also discovered limits that I wish I had not discovered. I came close to burnout a few times. I’m afraid I’ll be too late next time.”
“I miss some kind of mentorship at work and tend to overcomplicate things. It feels like I constantly have to reinvent the wheel and that creates a lot of pressure. I experience too much stress due to the growing pains of the business.”
” By creating a roadmap with Muriël for a better work-life balance, I discovered what I find important in my life and where I want to spend my energy. For instance, I was always very focused on my work and spent a lot of energy on work, but I didn’t get any energy in return. I also neglected other aspects of my life because of work, whereas I find those aspects much more important.”
– Jan (30)
“Through Eva’s coaching, I have found ways to have more peace in work, and therefore more appreciation for my current job. My discovery: the realisation that a choice to work less or differently for a while is not a final choice, but can be for a certain phase. That was an eye-opener that was really needed. And the discovery that I have much to be grateful for.”
“Manou’s direct communication made me think in a positive way. I do need a nudge in that direction from time to time. Sometimes I want to move on to another topic too quickly, but fortunately Manou makes sure I pause and think about the topic long enough before we move on. So I am very satisfied! The assignments were instructive, Manou offered a listening ear without judging and I was well served. (?) So highly recommended!” – Debbie (30) Recruiter, Multinational

Niets is in beton gegoten bij The ME Company, de vraag van de coachee staat helemaal centraal. Onze consultants moeten er zelf echt iets voor doen. Uiteindelijk zijn zij degene die stappen willen maken en daarvoor in actie moeten komen. De ME-coaches ondersteunen daarbij.
Dit kan confronterend zijn, maar ook nodig. Juist die confrontatie helpt onze consultants verder. Een confrontatie op een persoonlijke maar professionele manier.
Goede persoonlijke begeleiding waarin direct handvatten worden geboden die in de praktijk toepasbaar zijn. Dat vind ik erg krachtig. Niet alleen praten, maar echt in actie komen!

Onderzoek wijst uit dat bijna driekwart van de dertigers te maken heeft met een zogenoemd dertigersdilemma in onze samenleving. Rond je dertigste is een moment waarop je vaak grote beslissingen neemt op het vlak van werk, relatie, wonen en/of een kinderwens. Besluiten...
Ook ik behoor tot de groep dertigers die te maken kreeg met het Dertigersdilemma. Ik vond mijn werk onvoldoende uitdagend en zocht naar nieuw werk. Vond nieuw werk en liep binnen korte tijd weer tegen de vragen aan als: wat wil ik echt? Waar krijg ik energie van? Hoe...
Als je alles kunt kiezen, wil je de beste keuze maken, toch? We leven in een uitdagende en behoorlijk stressvolle tijd. Het leven vraagt veel van ons, zeker als je als dertiger midden in het leven staat. Daarbij wil je voldoen aan de verwachtingen van anderen en...
