Emotional Strength Development 2019

Select "Nederlands" at the top for the Dutch version of the text.


We are busy with our work all day and that is great as long as we are passionated. What is it that drives you and why do we work anyway? It seems a trivial question but when you think about it, it is not so simple. In fact, our work is a means to live a meaningful and happy life.

It is well known that it takes 10,000 hours, or 7 years, to become an expert and thereafter we have to maintain knowledge and skills. For personal development this is very similar. It is a process of years to understand yourself, actually a continuous process that never stops.

There are various models and insights that are useful to further develop yourself. I have encountered a reasonable number of sights that helped me, and still help me, to work towards goals. In addition, if we have a better understanding of ourselves, we can also better understand others.

I would like to share my insights so that everyone can benefit from it. The workshops are a mixture of models and practical examples. There is room for discussion. Nobody has to share personal topics, that is entirely up to you.

During the ESD meetings Karin will take care of the catering. Before we start there is coffee with some goodies. After the presentation there will be a drink (no alcohol) and not ordinary homemade snacks. Curious? Take a look at: Cups & Teaspoons. Renting the room with equipment at the UT and catering is not free. That is why I ask a fee of € 20 per evening.
