Crafting my cv and my motivation letters
"I'm a skeptical person and very attached to my money. But, I also believe there are people with incredible talent who are worth their weight in gold. The trick is finding them. When I needed a career coach and some objective advice in crafting my cv and motivation letters after 15 years in the same company, I wanted to find the right person. For me, the right person was a consultant experienced with international business who was pragmatic, logical, yet still warm. I did my research and landed on the profile of Tineke. I liked what I saw and decided to take the plunge. I am very happy to say, she exceeded my expectations. In a very short time she got to the bottom of what I was missing and saw what I couldn't see as I was too close to it. Her razor sharp insights were mind blowing because someone whom I just met could see the professional and personal 'me' and advise how to move forward and present myself. This was very valuable and changed the tone of my CV and cover letters on which I now receive excellent feedback. I'm so grateful for her advice and recommendations and confident about my new profile direction. Thank you, Tineke!"

I have learned to reflect the following:
- Ongoing: Reflect on what makes this situation dysfunctional & address that in a writing to yourself and ask yourself: Why do I do what I do if it's dysfunctional?
- Growth: What is getting in the way of my growing?
- Insight: This behavor isn't weakness. These insights are the key to identifying the problem and developing.
- Nurture what energizes me (social aspect/Analytical/research side = my management drives. Why am I there?

Through specific and direct questions, I was able to understand the root causes of my stress triggers. In addition, through a structured analysis of my personality, interests, and skills I built a professional profile with which I felt not only satisfied but also re-energized and self-confident to approach the Dutch market. Tineke is a professional, her theoretical knowledge and practical examples connect easily with your own experience and feelings

"Strongly recommended, especially if you aren't really sure what you're looking to find out. A personal and pleasant touch makes the coaching sessions fly by, but they never felt like they were rushed for time. Tineke takes her time to understand before offering any bit of insights.

I needed to challenge myself more. What is my next stage, how do I develop myself more? I also liked to learn to be less emotional. Tineke suggested and proposed to focus more on myself not the rest of the world. She showed me different ways of looking at the issues, stop blaming the others. She helped me to find in myself what I really like and that helped me to grow within the company.

" With the guidance of Tineke I learned new insights about myself. I managed to understand better how my own mind works and thus make changes in order to improve in my carrier and personal life. Going through the sessions was easy as she was able to create an environment of understanding and acceptance. The entire process can get heavy, as you have to be willing to dig in your past and be true to yourself but with the help of Tineke, it was smooth and pleasant. The sessions have changed my entire perspective on life and work, helped find a better balance, work on my strengths and weaknesses. As a result, I became a better version of myself and I am more aware and willing to keep on working on improving. I warmly recommend her, she is a great coach and person. "

Throughout the coaching program, which happened to be during a very difficult burn-out period, I experienced enormous support. I learned a great deal through working with a coach who dealt with my issues warmly, personally, and professionally.
