The whY of your Career


"Performance = Abilities * Motivation"



In our approach to career planning, we tend to focus on our professional knowledge and skills – our abilities. However, what we manage to achieve and how satisfied we are in our professional lives depends just as much on our personal  motivation - or, as Simon Sinek puts it: our WHYs.


This course offers an opportunity to reflect on the structure of your personal motivation factors, your intrinsic goals and your individual needs.


You will then learn how to use your WHYs to make better and more sustainable job decisions and bring your professional lives in alignment with them, building a sustainable basis for a fulfilled and successful professional life.
