Thinking ahead. What could your next career step be?

I experienced the couple of sessions I had as supportive and insightful.

For whom?

For UvA staff and employees from other organisations who want to remain optimally employable or who are not sure if they are in the right position for them. For UvA staff this service is included in their CAO and can be used once every two years and working for at least 1 year at the UvA.

From passive to active role.

For whom?

Employees who could use new tools and insights to help them in their work.


Coaching aimed at revealing and cultivating talents. This programme is based on a coaching plan, drawn up by the employee and the coach. The requirements of the department can be incorporated in the coaching plan.

Are you leaving your current employer, for whatever reason?
