Another side of career


In Western culture, the term career is almost exclusively associated with professional advancement and growth. What’s often left behind is what a successful career should include on a personal level:

  • maintaining mental and physical health
  • working on fulfilling relationships with partners, family and friends
  • space for personal growth and simply being human.

I call the development at that level “the other career”. 

From an early age we are trained to climb the professional career ladder in a way quite visible from an outside view. On the contrary, the “other” career remains in the background and is hardly ever explored at school, university or workplace. But the balance and interaction at both levels is a prerequisite for a successful life.

You've come to the right place if you want to fully experience life’s joy and fulfillment in addition to professional appreciation.

Together, we will unearth what is really important to you in life, how you can avoid burnout or boreout and how you can redefine terms such as career or success for yourself. 

Don't let your life rush past you like an express train!

Live Life With Intention, Not Stress! 

Take your future into your own hands and redefine what success and wealth mean to you personally.

Don't fall into the trap of simply swapping one hamster wheel for another. If you want your life changes to be sustainable, don't rush. Take a time-out, put some thought into which path to take. I help you to get started.

The coaching with Anke was eye opening. Suddenly my decisions, my feelings, my experiences, my whole life seemed to form a pattern I could suddenly understand - and start with the necessary changes.

Self Inspection

When did you last spend time for a review of your life and career? Is there a hidden cost you pay for your success, how do you really feel behind the surface? What stops you from leading the life you want?

Find Direction

Are you feeling lost or overwhelmed by life's pressures? Focus on the essentials in your life. What is valuable for you, what is indispensable, what can be thrown overboard? Are your goals truly YOUR goals? Dare to abandon unhelpful beliefs and don't hesitate to declare a new destination.

Take Action 

You know what you want and you know your direction, but have no idea how to get there? Learn to develop an easy to follow step-by-step strategy, taking into account your habits, your needs and your dreams.
